Artist Miles Partington Returns To Southampton’s Tripoli Gallery

Miles Partington's Shelf Life.

On Saturday, March 3, the Tripoli Gallery in Southampton will present its latest exhibition, Where, where is the town by artist Miles Partington. The Southampton-based artist and East End native works with both sculpture and paint to craft human and animal subjects in sizes small and large. The opening night reception with Partington will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery.

The show will illustrate the artist's personal history as well as the Earth's history, spanning from ancient history to modernity. He works with plywood, clay, concrete, cardboard, cloth, yarn, and countless other objects to carefully reconstruct moments that have stuck with him.

Some of his sculptures take the form of colorful dioramas that afford the viewer a window through which they can observe a different, smaller world - one with scenes of wildlife and human life. "Viewers are taken on a tour through Partington's world as they step from the first room of the gallery to the second, transforming from observers of his subjects to participants among them, which leap in scale from miniatures to life-sized beings," says the gallery.

Born in the eighties, Parington went on to attend SUNY New Paltz and interned for sculptor William King. He has most recently exhibited at Space 98, Ashawagh Hall, the Southampton Arts Center, and the Tripoli Gallery. From his self-portraits to surrealist studies, "Partington blurs the lines between sculpture and painting, reality and fantasy, past and present, human and animal," says the gallery.

The exhibit remains on view until Monday, April 2.

Tripoli Gallery is located at 30 Jobs Lane in Southampton. For more information, please visit tripoligallery.com.
