This event has ended.

M.David and Co. presents Alone in This Together, an exhibition of paintings by New York based artist Mary DeVincentis.

The show’s name and the works included speak to our shared reality during the darkest days of the COVID pandemic, and alludes to the life of many artists, who create in solitude but who nonetheless participate, through their work, in an ongoing conversation with others across time and space. On a meta-level, the title and theme reference the subjective nature of our individual perceptions and life experiences.

It is in the spirit of this conversation that Mary has brought together fourteen guest artists who explore similar concerns in their practices. They include Katherine Bradford, Matt Blackwell, Farrell Brickhouse, Peter Burns, Susan Carr, Daniel John Gadd, Judith Linares, Grace Metzler, Mark Milroy, Janice Nowinski, Jackie Shatz, Peter Williams, Joyce Yamada and Charles Yuen.

DeVincentis creates contemporary fables, dark, poignant, fraught with danger, beauty and hope. Her paintings are populated by all sorts of beings seeking both freedom and connection, who search under night skies, surrounded by the raw beauty of nature unkempt, with the terror of destructive forces mitigated through her unique visual humor. This most current body of her work has a gritty, elemental and existential quality. It speaks directly to our collective focus over the past eighteen months of confronting our physical and emotional isolation, a multitude of losses and a heightened sense of our own mortality.

Using a reduced palette, more textured and varied surfaces and employing a darker sense of humor, DeVincentis’ paintings masterfully create evidence of the fragility, uncertainty and surreality of time itself. Think Alice in Wonderland as a practicing Buddhist in the midst of a Grimms Brothers fairy tale.
