SAC Storefront Art Project - MILES PARTINGTON: Dublin Zoo
The ever-growing Storefront Art Project continues with artist Miles Partington and his new installation Dublin Zoo at a window to be announced.
“Dublin Zoo” is a showing of Miles Partington's current work. Constructed with cardboard and other common objects and colored with spray paint, he attempts to capture the gestures and patterns of some of the animals he admires most. With the continuing pandemic, and an abundance of cardboard, he found it to be a strong and malleable material; perfect for making quick impressions of the creatures. Further, stripping the top layer reveals the corrugation which resembles stripes of a zebra or a tiger. Spray paint is another material that lends itself to immediate results and allows for the capture the subtle color shifts of the animals.
Many of the animals are familiar to Miles' work, like giraffes, alligators, whales, while some are newer additions, such as zebras and bats. Perhaps the less familiar ones will find their way into his work more often. With this series he hopes to have displayed some of the humor, beauty, and complexity that exists in the animal kingdom.
Thank you to Mayor Jesse Warren and the Trustees of the Village of Southampton for their support of this ongoing project.
