Susan Bee, Siren Song, 2019, oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches

2019

About

The two paintings, Abuses of the World, 2018, and Siren Song, 2019, are loosely based on two pages from medieval manuscripts that were featured in the 2018 Morgan Library show: Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders. These wondrous images are inspired by the group of strange beauties and frightful anomalies that populated the medieval world. These fantastic beings were meant to inspire a sense of marvel and awe in their viewers. These monstrous women seem powerful as they take on the world of men, drowning some of them, and as they play their instruments with their defiant songs. Bee has published sixteen artist’s books. She has collaborated with poets including: Susan Howe, Charles Bernstein, Johanna Drucker, and Jerome Rothenberg. Bee is the coeditor with Mira Schor of M/E/A/N/I/N/G: An Anthology of Artist's Writings, Theory, and Criticism, Duke University Press, 2000, and the coeditor of M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online. Her artist’s book archive and the M/E/A/N/I/N/G Archive are at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University. Bee’s artwork is in many public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery at Reed College, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Getty Museum, and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Her work has been reviewed in: Art in America, The New York Times, The New Yorker, ArtNews, The Brooklyn Rail, Artcritical, ArtSlant, The Forward, Huffington Post, Art Papers, and Hyperallergic. She won a Guggenheim Fellowship in Fine Arts in 2014 and has had fellowships at the MacDowell Colony, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Yaddo. Bee has taught at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Visual Arts, and Pratt Institute.
