In Worth’s paintings, she strives to reconnect herself and others through playful reverence of the outdoor world. She is not looking for nature’s perfections but rather the aberrations and strangeness that can be so delightful and surprising to discover if we only take the time. Worth believes that it is in the careful study of those imperfections-the asymmetry of shape, the roughness of texture, the decay and impermanence of lifeforms - that we can truly understand and appreciate the imperfections in ourselves.
Worth’s current body of work is like deviating from a familiar forest path and discovering a strange garden. Each piece skirts the border between the real and the imagined like a memory of our childhood when exploring the natural world was our favorite pastime. She creates her work through a blending of paint and found imagery bearing witness to nature in all its wonder and fragility. Worth intends for her work to remind us of the garden we loved but lost over time.
