FRANCIS SCHAEFFER ANALYZES ART AND CULTURE PART 120 Elie Wiesel, (In my 1-19-15 email to Dr. Wiesel I challenged him to go see the film PATTERNS OF EVIDENCE: THE EXODUS and I provided him the addresses of 5 nearby theaters!!) Part B (Featured artist is Sophie Hacker)

Over the last 20 years I have been writing many skeptics and sending them sermons by Adrian Rogers and printed material from the works of Francis Schaeffer. In my last post on Elie Wiesel I included this quote from Nelso Glueck which I sent to Dr. Wiesel in a letter on Dec 22, 2014:

 

“It may be stated categorically that no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. Scores of archaeological findings have been made which conform in clear outline or exact detail historical statements in the Bible.”[4]

4) See page 31 of: Rivers in the Desert: A History of the Negev (1959)

I followed this line of thought on 1-19-15 with an email to Dr. Wiesel:

 

To Elie Wiesel, From Everette Hatcher, I thought you would  like to see this movie Monday night in a theater near you!!

Dear Mr. Wiesel,

Of all the people in the world that know the history of the Jewish people it has to be you that knows about the ups and downs the Jews have experienced. Therefore, I thought of you when I heard about this film PATTERNS OF EVIDENCE: THE EXODUS, which is only showing one time this Monday night January 19, 2015 at 7 pm at a theater near you. You have contended you don’t believe in the Bible because you don’t have the scientific type evidence that you require. This film contains the findings of over a dozen academics who are experts in archaeology and here it is at a nearby theater to you.

You can get a ticket by going to this website at this link and putting in your zip code to find a theater near you. It stars Israel Finkelstein, Benjamin Netanyahu,  Shimon Peres,  and many more and they will be discussing if the Exodus took place or not with only scientific facts.  I have posted several very good reviews of the major motion picture on my blog.

Here are some theaters near you that are showing the film:

1. REGAL FENWAY STADIUM 13 & RPX201 Brookline Ave, Boston, MA 02215, 2. SHOWCASE CINEMAS DE LUX REVERE565 Squire Rd, Revere, MA 02151, 3. AMC BURLINGTON CINEMA 1020 South Ave., Burlington, MA 01803, 4. SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX LEGACY PLACE670 Legacy Place, Dedham, MA 02026, 5. SHOWCASE CINEMAS DE LUX RANDOLPH73 Mazzeo Dr., Randolph, MA 02368.

Everette Hatcher, cell ph 501-920-733, everettehatcher@gmail.com, P.O. Box 23416, Little Rock, AR 72221

PS: I bet some of your Jewish relatives are already going to the film. It would be a good time for discussion afterward with them.

Contrary to much opinion, t

Nine Panels in response to Messiaen’s “La Nativité du Seigneur

These works, each 60 centimetres square were produced in response to Messiaen’s “La Nativité du Seigneur” Sophie Hacker listened to the work many times, in a variety of recordings, and over a year produced nine works of art related to the life, and especially the nativity, of Christ. The works are low relief sculpture, but made mainly out of slats of wood, lead, wire and all manner of found objects, rather than stone. Sophie Hacker has a great love of these found objects and their possibilities as art.

 

The worship of the Shepherds

For example, the work based on the theme of the shepherds includes flattened bark, handmade paper, hessian of different kinds, string and old leather. This has five thick strands of materials at a diagonal across the work, with their roots in the earth, against the background of a rising sun.

 

But although Sophie Hacker sees herself as a sculptor, she trained at the Slade as an abstract painter and one of the strengths of these works is the unity and interplay between the objects and the way they have been painted. Using acrylic, there is a powerful use of colour, which helps to give each work both its unity and its distinctiveness. Some of the works are very accessible, for example “Les Anges (The angels), with its swirling shapes in different blues. As has been written “Soft textures evoke the surface of feathers. Shards of mirror reflect light over the image, as the main shape sweeps up like a swarm of starlings. Metallic leaf and iridescence bring even more glimmer. All this articulates the chattering, high notes of the music.”

 

The Worship of the Magi

God among us

Jesus’ acceptance of suffering

Requiring more attention before it makes its impact is the work based on Jesus’ acceptance of his suffering. Dominating the piece is a rough piece of wood of interesting texture and with subtle shapes in it, which emerges from a metallic background of brown with glints of gold.

______________

Sophie Hacker graduated as a painter from the Slade School of Fine Art. She later re-trained as a sculptor and continues her studio work in a wide range of materials including stained glass. Current projects include church re-ordering and designs for altars, frontals and furniture, in partnership with other practitioners and she is Arts and Exhibitions Consultant to Winchester Cathedral.
