Alissar Langworthy

Artist’s statement


I am an oil painter, specializing in large-scale canvases. My practice spans the last 30 years, and most recently, my abstract paintings have been partially influenced by experiences from life at sea. I am a maritime captain of a research vessel. I believe that in addition to the ship’s responsibilities, steaming offshore for prolonged periods of time, interacting with marine life and enduring various climatic events, have all contributed to various ideas for the abstract creations on my canvas.
