Juried and Curated by: Peter Gynd, Margaret Krug, Peter Trippi, and Jimmy Wright

As we continue to bear witness to a suffering world torn asunder by contagion and the seeming worst of human failings, the need for some relief, specifically aimed to soothe our troubled souls, becomes tantamount. It is to this calling that Equity Gallery stages a juried exhibition of artworks that aspire to a paradisiacal idyll, a higher place of virtuous delight–an eternity untainted.

As an ensemble, Il Paradiso’s collection of artworks, with a focus on flowers, botanicals, and the untamed wilderness both within and without, offers a powerful and seductive display of decorative effects and archaic symbolism that signify prosperity, rebirth, healing, and love itself. As such, Il Paradiso functions as a repudiation, commentary, and a reprieve from the follies of our current anthropocene age. Our world and our time, as did the world and its times of crisis before us, needs a bit of heaven and a lot more love. Il Paradiso offers us a glimpse.
