530 Burns Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Carter Wentworth. Exploring the dynamic layers and energetic colors found throughout his body of work, “Carter Wentworth” will run from February 8 through February 20 at 530 Burns Gallery, 530 Burns Lane, Sarasota, FL. The opening reception will be held at the Gallery on Friday, February 8 from 6 to 9PM, with an opportunity to meet the artist.
Carter Wentworth is a mixed media artist and works with water based paints, primarily British pigments, on thick cotton-based paper. Carter says that for him, “painting is a process of discovery. It’s not premeditated, but a reaction to the first mark I make upon the paper. I remain aware of the edges, and the painting becomes an excerpt of a larger imagined space.” Living in Marblehead, Massachusetts and tending to his expansive gardens, Wentworth lets the garden inform his painting and vice versa.
Though abstract, the pieces meticulously record a narrative which passes through the lens of his subconscious mind. Within the repetition of patterns, there is a lively viewpoint on the diverse vibrancy found in nature. Each vignette takes the eye a little deeper into the surroundings, highlighting both the micro and macro elements that interact to form a delicate ecosystem and a complex composition.
530 Burns Gallery is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 10PM and Sunday 1PM to 9PM.
As more works become available, they will be posted here.
