Nick Boccio and Chef Carmine di Giovanni of The Project Group have partnered with restaurateurs David Schulman and Sean Kehlenbeck to bring a new restaurant to the Hamptons that highlights local food in a simple way.

Along with The Greenwich's seasonally inspired dishes, large table specials, and extensive wine menu, the Water Mill eatery features artist Jeremy Penn's most recent series of work.

The New York-based modern artist's A Portrayal of Power series will be exclusively on exhibition throughout the summer, and the works have played a significant role in the aesthetic and design of the new restaurant.

His vibrant pieces bring the seduction and sophistication of an art gallery to The Greenwich's fresh white walls. Each of Penn's portraits emulate a powerful female creating a "Femme Fatale" aura.

Penn was born in New York City in 1979 and studied Fine art at the University of Maryland and the Pratt Institute. While attending the Pratt Institute, he focused on color study, this is evident in a majority of his past works and present processes today. His work has been exhibited globally and has received honors from curators at museums such as The Modern Museum of Art, New York and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

He likes to explore the dichotomies in suggested dialogues between men and women, and expresses powerful tensions through his vibrant use of color.

A Portrayal of Power allows patrons to be submerged in pops of color unveiling layer of the captivating portraits and suggesting that beauty is from not just the outside but the confidence within.

"The Hamptons will always tie in revolutionary experiences of Art, in which I am draw to and inspired by," Penn explained. Artists such as Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning are two of his favorite artists that share the same love for the Hamptons environment. And these inspirational mentors have cultivated the new Abstract Expressionist movement post WWII while living out on the East End. Penn would like to translate the same inner freedom into his use of bold colors.

The Greenwich is located at 1020 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information about Jeremy Penn, visit www.jeremypenn.com.
