BMoCA at Macky | Kerry Cannon: Alchemy

Kerry Cannon, Then one night did he sleep. . . , 1998, bronze

January 11 – March 24, 2013

Opening Reception Friday, January 11 5:30pm
Join us on opening night for an expert talk with the artist and his mother, 6:30pm

Taking pleasure in the humorous nuances and intimate details of the human condition, Kerry Cannon tells the story of Alchemy in a series of bronze sculptures that progresses from scene to scene like a three-dimensional comic strip based on a Shakespearean tragedy. The story follows the alchemist’s quest to unlock the secret of the Philospher’s Stone in order to turn base metals into gold. To do this, the right balance and combinations of elements had to be achieved in laborious experiments, while the stars and the unpredictable moon had to be in just the right position.

Kerry Cannon was born in 1958 and lived in Texas and Colorado before moving to Australia in 1995. Now he divides his time between Warialda in New South Wales and Arizona in the United States. He holds a BS from Colorado State University (1981) and an MBA from University of Colorado at Denver (1987), and attended Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, Denver (1994). Cannon exhibits regularly in Australia and the US.
