Today’s first guest is Sadee Brathwaite, an Artist and Minister/Priestess of Maåt. She makes drawings and paintings, figurative and abstract, about archetypes, symbols, ancient cosmologies, beliefs and myths. As an ordained Minister/Priestess, She advises people in life, in creativity, and in spirituality. Her calling, either through art or advising, is to help people heal and grow as spiritual, enlightened beings. We talk about how her art and her church were the things that brought her joy and comfort as a young person who moved from Barbados to the US at a young age, how her spirituality has evolved over the years, the sacred feminine and sacred symbolism that appear in her art, finding Ione and the Ministry of Maat, mysticism, and how it all comes together beautifully to complete the picture of her work and her life’s purpose.
My second guest is Rakel Stammer, an artist who primarily works in painting and drawing, but also dabbles in sound, installation, collage, writing, photography, printmaking and performance. Her work has been published in several magazines, anthologies and journals across the world and she has exhibited in Denmark, Sweden and the U.S. She recently completed a residency at the Women’s Studio Workshop and will be exhibiting her series “The Cunt Drawings” completed during a residency at Deer Creek Collective in November at @sassafrasny in Kingston, NY. Rakel speaks publicly and writes about capitalism, art, trauma, dominance and violence, seen through an anti-capitalist, intersectional feminist lens…all things we talk about today on the show!
