The Principle

CLU art professor Michael Pearce brings his impressive paintings and sculptures to the Kwan Fong Gallery. The body of work is inspired by the natural philosophy of renaissance alchemists, whose explorations into the phenomena of the universe resulted in some remarkable achievements in early science and were paralleled by their mystical belief in God.

Large oil paintings created over the course of seven years document Pearce’s study of alchemical philosophy and hermetic imagery. His Web site and blog can be found at

Admission is free. The Kwan Fong Gallery, located in Soiland Humanities Center, is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
