Adam Bruce Wentworth    A Larkin Gallery Debut   July 1 - 6, 2022
There's Always Room for Jello 
oil on canvas   24 x 18"
​Wentworth's exhibit features oils, cyanotypes and mixed media pieces created with striking themes. "Whether examining the individual or the impact of media, celebrity, advertising and politics on the collective psyche, my work seeks to come to an understanding with our traditions, motivations and the façades we project. Using an alternative set of icons, the human and deeply personal aspects of our being are contrasted with the sterility of the digital age, the pressures to conform to a standard of thinking, living and consuming, ultimately, the betrayal of our essential nature as individuals within the larger scheme of life.

How can these conflicting elements of humanity be reconciled? My work takes its inspiration from this question. All information is taken in, processed and restructured, the resulting images reveal the by-products of their original components, looking beneath the surface of what we are told and what we are sold.

Various techniques are employed to express these concepts, some work focuses heavily on the photographic image, using silkscreen printing or photo collage, while other works rely exclusively on the raw, organic qualities of oil paint. By alternating styles, the work is kept fresh, each piece informing the next through shared ideas and color schemes. This approach creates a unique texture for the eye as the body of work is observed as a whole, while allowing enough room to be free of the restrictions of labels or definitions." ABW
