According to Encyclopaedia Brittanica online, allussion is an implied or indirect reference to an event, thing or a person. It states that the word "allusion" comes from Latin where it means "game" or "play on words".

On the other side, alchemy, according to Oxford dictionaries online, is somewhat magical process of creation and transformation.

Got confused how two of the above are connected? No need to be. Come and see for yourself what Alchemical Allusions Art Exhibition is all about.

Three Sydney-based artists (Clayton Micallef, Christopher Vidal and Robert Frost) will exhibit their art works at Zigi's Art Wine and Cheese Bar in Chippendale.

Christopher Vidal was born in Malta and studied arts at the School of Arts in Valletta. Chris has been painting from a very early age and for the last ten years most of his works were landscapes in oils and most recently - abstract work. Since 2012, he regularly exhibited his work in various group exhibitions in Sydney organised by various societies and organisations. Since then his work was bought by clients in Australia and internationally. His works are mostly landscape oil or acrylics paintings in impressionistic / realistic style. Chris found that painting landscapes links together his love for science, nature and painting.

Traveling around the country and being closer to nature increased his artistic inspirations and productivity. He also enjoys the freedom of experimenting with techniques and different materials and media when working on his abstracts. He likes to be spontaneous in this kind of artworks, approaching the canvas without any prior planning apart from having a concept in his mind.

Robert Frost is a primarily self taught artist. With an illustrative style and a preference for working in pen and ink, his focus is on art making as a method of personal transformation and growth. He has begun showing his work publicly only recently.

Robert is active in the arts community of his home city Parramatta, but places great emphasis on silence and reflection. Inspired by his wife, cat, nature, technology and mysticism, he seeks to create moments of quiet and stillness, evoking another world within or close to our own. Visit his website here

Artist Clayton Micallef is originally from Malta. He's been painting since 1991. Clayton is also a musician, plays numerous instruments and writes songs. In 2011 Clayton Micallef also founded the artistic movement Magical Creative Rituals, which concept is all about a group of artists, getting together and collaborating over one canvas. Clayton's interpretation of the world around him & his human interactions are defiantly conveyed in his expressions. One can spend many hours getting lost & finding themselves in these expressions. To get to know more about Clayton, visit his website here, or connect with him on Facebook here.

Alchemical Allusions is a collection of modern abstract work and semi-abstract work with a touch of realism on canvas and paper. With their art work these artists deliver a message about life and human existence in the Universe.
