The Artist at Work.

NANCY WORTHINGTON

An artist of unsurpassed vision and personal integrity, Worthington’s artworks represented the U.S.A. in the 18th International Bienal in Sao Paulo. Her works are in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., the U.S. State Department Art in Embassies Program, the San Jose Museum of Art, Mills College Art Museum, and private collections worldwide, with artworks exhibited in the United States, Europe, India and Japan. Worthington places her images on a tightrope between comic absurdity and tragic consequence. Art Historian Susan Platt, comments: “In the tradition of Bosch and Breughel, Worthington feels the injustices and ironies of our society. She uses her art as a vehicle for arousing our awareness of situations that concern her.” Worthington states “It has been said that civilizations are recorded and remembered by their wars and their art. The arts act as checks and balances against the more destructive side of civilization. My sense of hope for the future makes me want to facilitate change through awareness for a better, more humane world.”
