Piere Chalory and the Twin Towers #911 #NYC #art


Today marks the 13th year anniversary of 9/11. Can we forget the horrific footage of planes banking into their final approach as they attacked the Twin Towers in New York City? Can survivors ever forget the confusion and fear as they felt the impact and the buildings shook. How difficult was it to find an avenue of escape when the air was poisonous and thick?

 I have close friends who are survivors and they relive the maze of the Pentagon  over and over. They ask “WHY?” Why was I away from my desk? Why was it my co-worker rather than me?”  We should never forget this day. It was a day that terror took to the skies and waged war.

I am honored to feature the work of French artist Piere Chalory. The above painting was painted in August 1998. If you look at the photograph of the fractured areas where the planes struck the twin towers, they are really too close for guess work. How did Chalory know? What vision did he see as he went about his normal routine of painting in the abstract world of science fiction? I’m not sure he knows but his work ( a total of 6 paintings) is an indicator of the inevitably of that day.

Tomorrow, I will be sharing more of Chalory’s art. I hope you come back to enjoy his inspirational work.

The painting of the statue of liberty carries a message. I would love to encourage you to write something poetry, prose, reflection or haiku in honor of this day. Please link back to this post so I and  others will enjoy your tribute.

I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It’ very interesting. Who knows, maybe whoever planeed the strikes saw the artwork.

    I also appreciate that you put the ink to your page here because it makes it so much easier to get to your work. Really, everyone should do it.
