Sunday, December 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Camden Public Library will exhibit the work of the artist team Clarity, Robert & Su.Sane Hake, during the month of December. This year’s show, their 18th, and last at the Camden Public Library, is entitled “Alchemy, The Soul of Our Work.”
The art reception with Clarity has been rescheduled to Sunday, December 8, 2:00-4:00 pm.
Artists’ Statement About the Show:
This being our last show, we are going to close the door open with an Alchemical completion. Alchemy, the force of the dot swallowed by the space of the Circle, squared by the corners of connection, creating a new perspective, the Alchemical Child, the Feminine Voice.
The opening reception will be held Tuesday, December 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, in the Jean Picker Room Gallery at the library. At the reception Clarity will speak about Alchemy, the arc of their work that includes the elemental womb of color, the inner process of change, and the trianary relationship of elemental courage. The Alchemical Child is the resurrection of the Female Voice, a pivotal force of feminine power, the Origamic Womb, the Mercurial Goddess of the Lunar Waters is wedded to the Solar gift of color, witnessed by Salt, thus generating the Alchemical Child. There will be Performance Art, music by Gabrielle’s Sound, and food, as well. In addition, the Intuitive singer, Andrea Goodman, will sing the radiance of the Alchemical Child.
Robert & Su.Sane Hake have painted together for the past 30 years. “We both work on each piece at the same time,” they explain. “This collaborative style has become the hallmark of our work. First thought, right thought! We never edit our work, we allow it to flow to the canvas. Like music, we listen to the sounds of the piece as it presents itself to us. Our art is considered Visionary, Outsider, Folk, Mystical, Mythic, Sacred, and Alchemical.
Thank you, Robert & SuSane
