May Wentworth was born on 28 April 1965 in Pretoria, South Africa. She studied Fine Arts at the Tshwane University of Technology where she majored in painting. In 2OO9 she joined and help develop to the Superstroke Art Movement with other artists, including its founder, Conrad Bo. This led to a significant shift in approach to her painting, from a super realist perspective, to an expressive idiom much more informed by Superstroke Art Movement's manifesto.
Constantly evolving, her work has recently taken on a more dreamlike form, inspired by black & white European cinema of the 50’s and sixties and mathematics. The imagery is instinctive, and the viewer is encouraged to tell his own story. With less violent and expressive brush work, she is now contributing to the Superblur Art Movement. Here the the bar code is always present, sometimes in abstract form, commenting on the commodification of the self and art in the 21st century. Where Cubism focus on the Cube the Superblur Art Movement focuses on the intentional blurry photograph, the word blur itself and the abstract bar code. The idea in the Superblur Art Movement is that the collective mind is more powerful than the individual mind.
Manifesto for The Superblur Art Movement:
1.Superblur refers to a method of creating art using the definition of the word blur.
2.Thus the focus of the art will be to make the object or classification of the art unclear or less distinct .
3.Superblur will also focus elements that cannot be seen or heard clearly.
4.When photography is used with the elements of Superblur in mind. The camera will be manipulated or even be shaken to blur the picture and the aim is to produce images that are similar to abstract art in painting.
5.Instead of creating art for the sake of art, elements of art movements such as Superflat, Superstroke, Cubism and so forth, will be blurred in an attempt to create art that will be known as Superblur art.
6.The symbol for Superblur is the abstract bar code to differentiate it from other art movements such as Neo-Expressionism.
