Happy Birthday Ms. Suzannah Hadorn!
Another woman of Substance:
Suzannah Rhea Hadorn!
Whose birthday is today…
They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body. ~Author Unknown
As most artists paint what they are familiar with like their surroundings.
Suzannah is a unique artist with a secure sense of self. As a friend once wrote… “she is not about producing measurable recognizable results.” She draws from the inside… her soul.
More commonly known as shamanic drawings; she paints the spirits of that which are on her journey. The journey is seen relating to the 7-non physical senses, energy and the power of transcendence. Either personal or communal the drawings reflect the imagery the artist experiences.
This type of creating has been described as extremely hard.
As previously written:
This takes a lot of contemplation and courage to move beyond the restrictions of what we have been conditioned to think something objectively is. She passes through many veils in order to expose her uniqueness. Ms. Hadorn has an extraordinary artistic gift and with it she exercises the freedom needed to bring that gift from deep inside herself into the body of her works on paper. Her art is about soul searching, and connecting to the energetic pulse of what is going on around her.
Although she has shown her work in NYC, Brooklyn and various Pennsylvanian Art galleries, and two documentaries have been made about her…
I am proud and honored to have her here, at the Philip Hone Gallery, and above all to call her my friend.
I hope you all enjoy her works, Au Revoir! Caroline
