‘Metamorphosis’ is a collection of fantastical and surreal paintings and drawings by Hazel Florez. The theme of transition and transmutation tie together this collection of works that explore dream worlds and the symbolic realm of the subconscious.

Influenced by concepts of Jungian psychology, this exhibition invites the viewer into a world of mystical and mythological storytelling. Central to the exhibition is a series of wooden panel paintings each showing a different stage in alchemical transformation. Alchemy is the medieval forerunner of chemistry, concerned with the transmutation of matter, in particular with attempts to convert base metals into gold or find a universal elixir. However, in this exhibition alchemy is also explored in myths, psychological transformation and the reclaiming of powerful female archetypes in the form of symbols of the classical goddesses. As part of her research and creative process, for this exhibition, Florez has drawn inspiration from alchemical manuscripts at The Ritman Library Archive based in Amsterdam. She invites her viewers to step into the realms of magic and the otherworldly.

Hazel Florez (b. 1984) is a UK artist based in a London Studio in Hackney. She graduated at Edinburgh University and the Edinburgh college of Art from the MA Fine Art program in 2007. She is currently represented by Bridgeman Images. She has exhibited with a number of London art collectors and galleries including, The Holy Art, The Tub Gallery, Purslane, and The Vacant Museum.
