The Keep.

We are incredibly humbled to have the deeply introspective work of partners Alex Beneteau and Mark Outhwaite at AIH for the month of May. Their work will be featured in our upcoming exhibit The Keep.

Keep: Inner-Sanctum, i.e. The Keep. The most-protected structure within a castle.

Alex and Mark’s exhibit will feature their distinct styles of art-making founded in the backdrop of their childhoods. These moments, glimpses, and images will speak to the universal emotions of humanity when dealing with loss.

This exhibition is a means to protect, prolong or otherwise render indelible those memories we as individuals choose to elucidate by shaping them into physical media. Call them truthful heirlooms, mirrors into the shared psychic landscape inhabited by father and child, or simply the memories we chose to keep alive and the stories we chose to tell ourselves when the narrative of our relationships with our fathers has stopped being written. - Alex and Mark

 
 
Our artworks are a reaction to and or representations of the catharsis achieved in response to the loss and permanent absence of a Father’s love, concern and devotion.
