13th Annual Thanksgiving Collective: There is Still Good in This World

November 25 ‐ January 29, 2018

Southampton, NY – Tripoli Gallery is pleased to present There is Still Good in This World, its 13th Annual Thanksgiving Collective. Featuring works by Todd Bienvenu, Quentin Curry, Félix Bonilla Gerena, April Gornik, Mary Heilmann, Yung Jake, Benjamin Keating, Enoc Perez, Rene Ricard, Rachel Rossin, and Lola Montes Schnabel, the exhibition will be on view from November 25th, 2017 through January 29th, 2018. A reception will be held for the artists on Saturday, November 25th, from 6 to 8 pm, at 30a Jobs Lane, Southampton, N.Y.

 

“All we do is look down anymore

We need to look up

Because there is good in this world.

In our times of tumult, uncertainty bears down and we seek that which is good.  We reach out to folks who are positive in their approach of our future.  We seek inspiration from those who charge in the face of disaster to help the struggling, gazing at the strong to aid the weak, we look for all the better things that humanity will always offer, compassion and love for our fellows

This thanksgiving collective we give thanks to those unwavering souls that will never give up on this, the true meaning of being alive.” – Benjamin Keating

 

This exhibition celebrates the artists whose individuality and commitment to their craft allows us to keep faith amid hardship. In the painterly works of Todd Bienvenu we are reminded of an openness to be shared with one another, a sense of love and humor that interrupts the seriousness of life. Like Bienvenu, Quentin Curry’s colorful and textured approach to painting opens up a world of possibility, an exploration into the unknown.

The landscape paintings of April Gornik investigate that same unknown, illuminating the supremacy of nature, while Félix Bonilla Gerena’s vibrant paintings express a passionate relationship to his homeland of Puerto Rico. Also born in Puerto Rico, Enoc Perez paints the modern world from a perspective both nostalgic and utopic.

In the painted poems of Rene Ricard we read life suspended in a moment, while the work of Mary Heilmann transforms the observed and experienced world into a variety of lively colors and shapes. Yung Jake’s works on metal combine the physical and the digital – past and present meet with a glimpse into the future with prints and moving images of videogames and TV characters, distorted water bottles and stacks of emojis. Also working with metal, Benjamin Keating dismantles and reconstructs objects inhabiting his daily life, creating bronze and aluminum sculptures from wax molds that leave a permanent impression of what used to exist.

Rachel Rossin’s acrylic sculptures are shaped around her body, printed with images of digital landscapes and virtual realities, while in the gestural works of Lola Montes we find painted narratives both personal and universal, offering a glimpse into a shared world of dreams.
