Abracadabra! at Alma Zevi

Soft Pastel & Pencil on Paper drawings

The works explore the ‘Great Work’ of the alchemical process, through which two conflicting opposites are redeemed towards a state of perfect harmony.

On display at Abracadabra! at Alma Zevi, London curated by Freddie Powell
Exhibition opens 4 June 2021 for London Gallery Weekend until 18 June 2021

As an incantation, Abracadabra is a word used to trigger a magical effect on a subject, the popularity of which has now been relegated to simple tricks in magic shows. It had previously been a word of healing and for invoking protection against affliction and disease. The exhibition presents a selection of works on paper through which to explore the potential and multitudes of magical thinking and beyond.
