Contemporary artists influenced by alchemy
Here we will focus on contemporary artists who follow or are directly influenced by the imagery of alchemy. Of course the term 'alchemy' is often used in a metaphorical way or in a post-modern sense by many artists. Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Francesco Clemente, Krzysztof Gliszczynski, and many others claim alchemy as an influence, but as their actual work does not draw on the imagery, and the association seems so tenuous being contained in how they talk about their works rather than in the content, I will not include such artists here.
This page is currently being redeveloped. The links below will shortly be implemented and others added.
