Profile

 MARGARET WORTH: ARTIST + DESIGNER                                                       

MARGARET IS A GRADUATE of the SA School of Art and Adelaide University and received a Masters Degree in Fine Art at Columbia University New York. During 14 years residency in the USA, Margaret worked as an instructor for Sarah Lawrence College and Parsons School of Art & Design in New York, as well as a freelance illustrator for Macmillan Publishers. She made extended work and study visits to London and Paris, worked for Sol Le Witt and studied with Richard Serra and Lucy Lippard in New York.

 

RETURNING TO AUSTRALIA Margaret re-established her art practice and is represented in the Australian National Gallery, Art Gallery of SA, the national collection of Artbank, public and private collections in Australia and the USA. Margaret has participated in prestigious invitational exhibitions including the Tokyo Biennale, Adelaide Biennial, The Sydney Biennale, the National Helen Lempriere Sculpture Award and the National McClelland Sculpture Survey.

 

IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HER PRACTICE, Margaret established WORTH CONSULTING’, [Art, Design, Culture and Planning], reflecting her commitment to creating better public places. The focus is on making connections between people and places, increasing awareness and improving amenity. The outcomes are public spaces with greater interest, significance and social vitality.

 

MARGARET’S EXHIBITION WORKS REFLECT her experience of horticulture, agriculture and the central ‘desert’ of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara-Yungkunytjatjara Lands. They are the outcome of working on public projects in rural, regional and remote communities. They mark the geography and cultural footprints on the land.

 

RECENT ARTWORKS REFER TO DUSTS – cosmic to domestic to particle physics. They have grown out of the earlier works on land and water systems. The dusts of particle physics have led to the perception of time–place as a single entity with multiple existences. Public presentation and response to these works have revealed another layer for investigation – the mind-brain connection between physical and virtual realities through individual memory/associations. The works contrast physical material with virtual movement and sound and evoke personal responses based on association and memory.

 

THE NEW WORK develops the composition of elemental materials with abstract virtual movement and sound. They elicit responses based on individual associations of time-place. They make connections with alternative existences.

 

MARGARET'S FOCUS is on interactivity through artworks that connect place, experience and memory through materials, digital sound and movement. The achievement of a different mind space is central to her creative approach and output.
