Springs

(continued from page 11)

East Hampton. Visitors were quite impressed. Allen teaches chimps to paint with brushes or with their fingers. Some have taken to it as, well, as a duck might take to water. While still others seem uninterested in learning what she has to teach. Too bad for them. Some of her students create massive works of art that they sign by stamping paint on the corner with their feet. Others will only use one color of paint. Others seem to have gotten the hang, almost, of painting realistic scenes of what they observe. All of those who choose to paint, it seems to Allen, have found a measure of peace by doing what they are doing. Allen thinks that, as a result of their immersion in this creative process, they have, many of them, come to terms with their captivity. Or they have at least relaxed with their captivity knowing that, along with it, come paint and canvases. As painters before them have learned, creativity brings pleasure and happiness, even if you are a captive behind bars — which her students actually are. Here in the Hamptons, Allen’s idea is to create a sanctuary for the chimps, some large enclosure where they can live and work and paint and live it up with one another. And she is talking it up. Frank and Carolyn Bistrian have offered a large parcel of land behind their home in Springs where the chimpanzees could have their sanctuary. Adrienne Kitaeff, a prominent fundraiser, has volunteered her services to put together a benefit party for the sanctuary — it will mean

a lot of bananas among other things — and Dr. Jonathan Turetsky, a local veterinarian has promised his help. The New York Times ran an article about all of this on December 9, 2007. Reporter Chris Colin interviewed Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jay McInerney. “I find it interesting from the point of view of rescuing and rehabilitating chimps,” he said, perhaps missing the point. “And as a naturally curious person, it’s intriguing to encounter these close relatives.” What is it, just four genes in the helix that turn a little baby into either a chimpanzee or a human? Artist John Alexander of Amagansett had this to say. “If it’s beautiful and touches people in a magical way, that’s art. But beauty alone doesn’t necessarily make art. Neither does self-expression. It has to operate on more than one level. When a bird does its mating call, is that music?” Many people will open their mouths when what they say will appear in the New York Times. Sean Yunker, the senior at the Ross School who curated the chimpanzee paintings he received from Allen for his senior project at the school, said this to the Times reporter. “Certain things stimulate chimps when they paint, just like us too, I guess. Some teachers say, ‘How do you know it’s art?’ But what makes a urinal or Campbell soup cans art? If you’re expressing yourself on canvas, that’s

art.” Dr. Frederick Soroka, a chiropractor from East Hampton, says he will provide periodic adjustments for the chimps. The law firm of Kaye Scholar in Manhattan will provide pro bono legal help. And, according to Allen, a pilot at the East Hampton Airport said that he would be willing to take the chimpanzees up in his airplane for free to have a better look at what they are painting. As you see, this is moving right along. Hey, nobody ever did this for the human artists out here. Many of them had to wait tables or dig trenches for a living. They were not so lucky. Of course, there is the matter of zoning and permits. The chimpanzee sanctuary is not planned as just some here today gone tomorrow thing. It’s meant to be permanent. Debra Foster, who was an East Hampton Town Board member until this January, said in December that she thought the Town would look favorably on this project. One presumes that if the walls are high enough and the moat deep enough, it will all pass muster. Still, there are those that oppose all this. (How can anybody oppose something that is just so good for our fine-feathered friends? Or whatever?) Damien Roman, who does Public Relations for Vered Art Gallery in East Hampton, said, “Monkey painting is a total joke. It’s a disservice to artists who’ve trained and studied for years to call it art when monkeys splash paint on a canvas, even if it happens to resemble (continued on page 16)
