SEE HOW LOSS FEELS

Chandler Gallery Exhibit Offers Artists, Visitors Space to Mourn

CAMBRIDGE, MA (July 13, 2015) – Grief may be a universal human emotion, but the expression of grief is highly individual, as evidenced by “Images of Grief and Healing” at the Chandler Gallery. The exhibit, juried by therapist and artist Emily Newmann and art educator Deborah Putnoi, presents artwork inspired by personal loss. The losses are many and varied, and each piece has a story of its own.

Some artworks provide clues to the events that inspired them, others encompass more ambiguity, and still others take sorrow itself as their subject. Paint drippings run down Ilana Manolson’s “Fragile Season,” evoking tears. Elizabeth Michelman’s “Chapter 1: Determination” expresses the plaintive essence of loss and the cruel monotony of pain: the phrase “I Want You” is repeatedly burned into a wooden panel.

Sandra Allik elevates grieving to a mythic experience in “Urban Icarus (Luke).” A figure falls through the night sky above a darkened town. Below, a woman and a man mourn over a supine body as crowds of people bearing identical faces stand over them. Lights explode in the streets, suggesting a town under siege, or perhaps just the pain of two individuals spilling across the whole city.
