the art scene, once again, to shock and courageously alter consciousness

commentary that explores uncomfortable subjects with an absurdist
twist. Her assemblages are, both provocative and playful, reflecting
Nancy’s representation of a dangerous new world .
From themes of police brutality, scathing political and feminist
commentary, we feel, as the viewer, that we have entered the strange
and carnival-like dreamscapes of Nancy Worthington’s mind.
Using found objects, mechanical devices, odd collectibles, Nancy
manages to create sculptures, collaged and assembled to convey
different stories that are both engaging and stimulating. She explores
the dark side of our human condition with a light surreal touch.

as a charming and ingenious personality with a mission to facilitate
change and to bring about a better, more humane world . With
infectious enthusiasm, Nancy imparts a genuine quest to enlighten
her audience with interactive devices that allows the viewer to participate
. Her artful contraptions surprise and delight the viewer with a
cutting and fearless visual wit.

a series of 10 cryptographic self boxes…. The more I try to describe
these things, the more indescribable they become. They haunt you
afterward and for a long time.”
