Artist biography

Alissar Langworthy developed her inspiration for art from a very young age, as her family lived in different countries while she was growing up. She received her formal training in fine arts and design at Saginaw Valley State University, in Michigan, shortly after her permanent move to the United States. Over the years, Alissar kept gravitating toward her love of oil painting, which has been her medium for over 30 years. Her studio is currently in New Bedford, MA where she divides her time between painting, and serving as a maritime captain of a research vessel. Her work has been available for corporate loan programs, art shows and gallery exhibitions.

 

artist statement

The reality of everything can be interpreted in multi-faceted expressions, particularly in the world of art. In creating a new painting, it comes with the absolute understanding that when I approach the work, I do so with the expectation that the image will transform as the painting progresses. This very evolution is what drives my passion. It is the mystery, the anticipation and the allure of the final product that propel my love for painting contemporary abstract pieces.
