“ART IS AN AMAZING WAY TO MOURN…”: A QUOTE FROM SRINI PILLAY (AUTHOR, HARVARD CLINICIAN AND BRAIN-IMAGING RESEARCHER)

“When we think of art representing tragedy, it raises all kinds of questions.  Can we really make art of an experience where people have lost loved ones?  Can we truly justify directing people toward beauty when there is such tragedy?  The beauty of abstract art – and of Alborghetti’s art in particular, is that it is in invitation for us to project what we will onto the piece.  We do so anyway – even when human forms, gardens and ponds protect us with their explicit forms in Impressionist and Renaissance paintings.  Art, as I substantiated above, is a form of healing whose effects we can see in the brain. From a psychological perspective, art is an amazing way to mourn.  When it is as beautiful as Alborghetti’s, it invites us to revisit the tragedy of terrorism, the horror of loss, and the beauty of our own resilience as we make our way through this mysterious life”.

  1. Today, your words speak best, I think. Although we, here in the U.S. have ‘news’ it is loaded… and sometimes, it is best for we who do not know, up front, and with true understanding, to be still… lending energy to those who are most suited to generate a better way.

    Thank you. Meredith
