The ever-growing Storefront Art Project continues with artist Miles Partington and his new installation Dublin Zoo at 42 Jobs Lane.
Miles Partington joins SAC’s Storefront Art Project with his new installation of Dublin Zoo. On display at 42 Jobs Lane, the artist captures the gestures and patterns of the animals he admires most using cardboard, common objects, and spray paint. A strong and malleable material, layers of cardboard serve as an ideal medium for making quick impressions and adding detail to individual creatures. The immediacy of spray paint elevates the animals and their subtle color shifts in a thoughtful, vivid display. With the abundance of cardboard accumulated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Partington effectively repurposes the material to draw attention to 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.
Southampton Arts Center is thrilled to continue the Public Art Project, launched this past summer. In these colder months, SAC, with the support of Southampton Village, will work with landlords and property managers with vacant shops to animate their windows with dynamic art installations featuring East End artists. Inspired by the new legislation by the Village of Southampton requiring window displays in vacant stores, SAC’s Storefront Art Project features artist Alice Hope: Priceless at 8 Jobs Lane, Kerry Sharkey Miller: Wild Things at 84B Main Street, and Monica Banks: Inequality Bakery at 53A Jobs Lane.
About Miles Partington
At some point in while in school I stopped taking many notes and started to rely more on my memory. It gave me more time to draw in class, but also helped me focus on what I was hearing. A lot of my art now comes from memories and random thoughts that I was able to hold on to. Any ideas that are lost or forgotten only help to narrow my focus. Its often the simple ideas and first impressions that make it to the end of the creative process.
I use a wide range of materials including wood, apoxie clay, concrete, cardboard, household and found objects. The materials often play a big part in the direction of the art, sometimes the right object can be the missing puzzle piece that finishes the art.
Miles currently lives and works in Southampton, NY.
