Art Tackles the Towering Sadness

Smoke was still thick in the air when the art began

to appear on the streets of New York last September. No galleries

nor permits were required. People simply stepped out into public spaces

and started memorializing their shared loss with candles, flowers,

photographs, paintings, pleas, and poems.

As the first anniversary of September 11 arrives, this blatantly unselfconscious

moment has passed. And citizens, many still reeling with shock, are

still looking to the arts to help them make sense of it all.

At Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International

Affairs, curator Kate Somers knew that her first exhibition of the

academic year, and the first in the school’s newly renovated Bernstein

Gallery, would fall during the week of September 11. For the opening

show, "After September 11," she too turned to area artists

to learn of their responses to the day of terror.

"The work on view will be a deeply moving reflection of how 12

regional artists have expressed, in art, their emotional, spiritual,

and political reactions to that event," says Somers. The opening

reception for "After September 11" is Friday, September 13,

from 7 to 9 p.m.; the show remains on view to December 1.

Somers becomes the first curator at the Bernstein Gallery in its new

role as a showcase for art reflecting the mission of the school itself.

Associate Dean Karen Jezierny spearheaded the effort to make the 1,800-square-foot

Bernstein Gallery a place where art and public policy coexist. "At

the Woodrow Wilson School, we encourage our students to take an interdisciplinary

approach to solving public policy problems," she says. "Incorporating

the visual arts into the students’ academic experience serves to further

broaden their outlook."

Somers is only too aware of the tremendous visual ingredient of the

September 11 disaster. Some have said that the multi-part attack was

purposefully designed to ensure that the terrible destruction was

as widely seen as possible. "There was no going back," she

says. "The world was not going to be the same. Even if you lived

among the cornfields of Iowa, the world was not going to be the same."

She decided to seek out artists who she believed may have created

new work in response to their changed world.

"For me, this show came from a sense of responsibility," she

says. "As a curator, I feel a sense of responsibility, when I

am able, to put together art shows that in some way can reflect the

human condition and make people reflective and thoughtful in their

presence."

Many of the artists whose work she selected were already known to

her, others were introduced by colleagues. The exhibiting artists

are Robert Beck, Eleanor Burnette, Thom Cooney Crawford, Alan Goldstein,

Loring Hughes, Margaret Kennard Johnson, Dwyer Jones, Amy Kosh, Ken

McIndoe, Barbara Osterman, Margaret Rosen, Ludvic Saleh, Sheba Sharrow,

and Madelaine Shellaby.

Born and raised in Bucks County, the daughter of two

attorneys, Kate Somers attended George Washington University and went

on to earn her master’s degree in art history at Rutgers. After working

in Washington and New York, she returned to the area with her husband

and two children about 10 years ago. She has curated the Gallery at

Bristol-Myers Squibb for the past three years and also curates the

photographic exhibition program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

"I think that art is another way of seeing things, that art can

say things in some ways better than the written word," says Somers.

Asked why then each artist’s work in "After September 11"

is accompanied by a written statement, she smiles thoughtfully before

replying. "I wrestled with that. I wrestled with this notion of

whether to have the artists flesh it out, or to let the work stand

for itself. And ultimately I went with the artist’s statement because

it really does help the viewer get into the work."

As a curator, Somers’ quest was to understand how an artist approaches

such an enormous subject. "How do you get your hands around it?,"

she asks rhetorically. The answer, she quickly learned, is that there

are as many approaches are there are individual artists. She sees

her show as a microcosm of the many perspectives and points of view

found in our society.

"I think I’ve been able to get a real variety of approaches, from

the very direct work of Bob Beck who was there, painting outdoors,

to Sheba Sharrow who, at the time of the attack, was already working

on a series of paintings using the circus as a metaphor for the state

of the world." For some artists, the ghost forms of the Twin Towers are

a presence in the new works; for others, the event becomes transformed

into metaphoric abstraction.

America’s increasingly visual culture seemed ripe for a catastrophe

dominated by images.

"We were bombarded," recalls Somers. "Even if you wanted

to get away from the images, you couldn’t, they were everywhere. As

Bob Beck said, this was an exorcism of sorts. He couldn’t get any

of these images out of his head, according to what he told me, he

had to paint this in order to put some sort of closure to this barrage

of images that wouldn’t leave him."

Beck, who describes his mission to document the places, events and

occupations of our time by painting them from life, contributes three

paintings to the show that include "Towers of Light," a view

of the collaborative "Tribute in Light" as seen from Liberty

State Park, and "Lower World," a view of Ground Zero from

a wharf in Hoboken. His third piece, "Vestige," illustrated

on the cover of this issue, is the one Somers finds most haunting.

As Beck writes in his exhibition statement: "In the weeks following

September 11, the media was serving up a relentless barrage of images

and one adhered to me like gum on my shoe, an uninvited and persistent

obstruction to clear thoughts and creativity. I painted `Vestige’

as an exorcism, in one strike over many hours," he writes. Adding,

almost as an afterthought: "Only when finished, did I see I had

included blue sky."

Amy Kosh, an artist who teaches at Stuart school, evokes a sense of

shared loss through black and white photographs of an everyday outdoor

scene. Amid a bleak winter landscape, white laundry billows bravely

on a washing line.

"The events which took place in the U.S. on September 11, 2001,

caused a profound change in how we all went about our daily living.

But what has struck me the most is how quickly most people shifted

back to their former habits," writes Kosh. "My work, which

has come out of these shifting sensibilities, acts as reminder that

there are pieces of our lives still out of place… The imagery from

that day will replay behind our eyelids for years to come, but like

countless generations and societies before us, we have the choice

to use those images to become more compassionate, or to become less."

Madelaine Shellaby, also a teaching artist, employs both image and

words in her work, "Sending Them Stones." Her photograph of

one of the many Ground Zero volunteers is accompanied by the subject’s

story. Microcosm and macrocosm meet in the woman’s recounting of a

simple gesture made by a stranger to assuage the grief of a tired

firefighter.

"I was compelled to visit Ground Zero, as were most of my artist

friends, the result was a winter of depression and struggle to perceive

the tragedy in a larger scope," writes Barbara Osterman, for whom

new abstractions came out of the experience. "From paintings of

bodies, buildings and planes, the work has evolved into a more abstract

place. The rectangular strokes are new for my work and represent the

millions of papers covering the site."

Somers says Sheba Sharrow is an artist whose work, "from the beginning,

has been all about the human condition. When you talk about someone

who has a sense of social responsibility, she’s it."

Sharrow had been working on a circus image of an acrobat

on a trapeze, but the subject became too closely associated with falling

bodies. She then came across some words from Pablo Neruda’s Nobel

Prize acceptance speech and incorporated them into her painting. "Neruda’s

words refer to the artist’s condition in the contemporary world. To

me they speak of hope."

One of the show’s most subtle interpretations of its subject is a

painting by Ken McIndoe, painted from life in the weeks after September

11, titled "People in a Restaurant." It shows a group of men

and women hunched over their plates in a diner. As some commentators

have pointed out, for those New Yorkers who were suffering and struggling

to survive before September 11, the landscape of their struggle did

not significantly change.

"The world is at a standstill and has been for a long time,"

writes McIndoe in his statement. "The powerful build on the backs

of the poor who give their all until they die. The poor certainly

will have no monument for their sacrifice. The powerful will live

with their shame."

For Ludvic Saleh, the events of September 11 shaped a new body of

work, fueling an intense and consuming passion that underlies his

approach to the American flag. "In these new works, I have distilled

the star of the American flag as a graphic element," he writes.

"It becomes a statement of my personal anger directed towards

the events of September 11 and my love for this country. In the end,

I hope, a tribute."

Trenton artist Eleanor Burnette, who works with abstract imagery,

contributes two mixed-media works to the show, "Intersection"

and "Eaten Alive." Her statement, the show’s briefest, seems

to touch the essence of Somers’ question about how an artist can tackle

a subject as vast as September 11: "I create representations of

the small and large histories of humanity," writes Burnette.

Margaret K. Johnson is represented by two works, one

derived from a photograph and one print, both inspired by an arrow

she happened upon in the parking lot of the Princeton Public Library.

"This arrow was deeply cracked — all the way from its tip

through its stem," she writes. "Yet despite the toll it had

taken, the arrow was still there, still pointing the way forward…

I saw it as a metaphor for us all as we strive to go onward."

Margaret Rosen is also focused on rebuilding. On the first day after

the attack, she found herself sketching an abstraction showing massive

destruction and decay. Yet on the following day she abandoned it.

"On September 13, 2001, I started the painting seen here today,"

she writes. "I wanted to capture the brilliance and majesty of

what was lost."

Somers has three more shows planned for the Bernstein Gallery’s 2002-’03

season: "In Their Backyard: Community Health Leaders," showcasing

black and white photographs by Larry Fink featuring community health

leaders across the country who have dedicated their lives to improve

healthcare for our most vulnerable populations. This will be followed

by "Africa’s Lunatics," work by the young Frenchman, Vincent

Fougere, who spent eight years photographing people with serious mental

illness in Africa. The final show of the season will be a juried competition

of photography by Woodrow Wilson School students as they express visually

their academic studies both here and abroad.
