You're Right Where I Left You | Solo Exhibit by Stephen Michael Haas

  • Discerning Eye Center for the Arts 12 West New Street Lancaster, PA, 17603 United States (map)

As 2016 continues on, DECA has yet another landmark show for you all. 
Stephen Michael Haas, from Harrisburg Pa, has been a prolific artist at quite a young age. From having completed 8 large scale murals, to installations of work in every creative space in the Harrsiburg Area, Stephen's resume is extensive.
To add to it, he has also worked under influencial artists of today such as Wayne White and Crystal Wagner.

His solo exhibition titled "You're Right Where I Left You" is an intimate and empathetic tale of growth; it is a journey into the shadow of one's self, recognizing what needs to be shed and emerging with the effeciency of complete oneness and confidence in self; emerging with only that which is needed, with only that which is necessary and important for a full and enriching life. 
Stephen so powerfully emotes with every piece, and illustrates each part of that journey with either wild ferver or patient precision. Witness the spectrum that is the enlightment of Stephen Michael Haas. 

Statement by SMH:
"This last year has been one of the most beautiful but trying years for me. I seem to have lost sight of who I am as a person and worse, as an artist. But, I’ve grown and learned that sometimes detaching yourself from who you use to be just means that you’ve made room for the cliche: a new you. But, that’s true. I’ve grown as a person and the person who I’ve become isn’t worse or better; just different. 
My latest show, "You're Right Where I Left You" focuses on reconnecting myself to my art. I feel like I have lost this specific factor that use to define me and I’ve come to understand why; I have had to go back to my roots and come to terms with many of my demons. With that realization, I was able to genuinely create and that’s what I love.
As a courteous forewarning, you will see many happy things but also many upsetting things in this installation. Sometimes, that’s not always easy for people to handle but easy isn’t fun or challenging. I want to share my personal view of the human experience as we all are and I hope you choose to come out and celebrate my art and also, The Art of Human Emotions. 

What can you expect?
Live music, food, beautiful company and real sexy art work! Come on out if you feel like experiencing things from my perspective.
