plus ultra gallery is extremely pleased to present “eight guardians of the sacred prize,” the first solo exhibition by new york artist trevor wentworth. in a series of mixed media wall pieces and tabletop three-dimensional prints landscapes of historically influenced but anachronistically and spatially abstracted microscopic environments, wentworth presents nearly three-years of splendidly obsessive and meticulous work. layer after layer of almost impossible detail reveal themselves in these allegorical sculptures and installations that form an environment in turns as dense as history or sparse as the space between parts within molecules.

referencing both the scientific accomplishments of the celebrated 17th century maker of microscopes, anthonie van leeuwenhoek, and the war between england and the netherlands that stood as a backdrop to leeuwenhoek’s incredible life story, wentworth appropriates vocabulary via a method perhaps best described as a visual stream of consciousness. from magnifications of cellular creatures to dutch royal insignias and architectural flourishes, the signifiers jostle, overlap, merge and mutate in an organic free-form of association and creation as opulent as it is ponderous. for more information about contact joshua a. stern or ed winkleman at 718-387-3844 or info@plusultragallery.com
