Charles Nodrum

"Typical artists’ biographies might record youthful questioning and rejection of the standard school curriculum (both humanities and sciences) and an early talent for drawing - acompanied by an impatience to discard the first and embrace the second.
Not Margaret Worth. She studied music, physics, pure and applied maths, psychology and philosophy before going to the South Australian School of Art where she studied under Sydney Ball. “I was looking for a means to combine my wonder in science and in spirituality – a visual language that, like music and mathematics, could speak for both.”

Margaret Worth

"I had the forms made with surfaces of minimal textural character – cotton canvas and marine plywood. The colour was made to become one with the surface by painting many thin layers of pigment, in water based polymer emulsion. The layers were absorbed into the surface and the colour areas were matched to the form. The results were as close a marriage between form and colour as I could achieve.”
