Textile Translations of Maine
Catherine Worthington’s Textile Translations of Maine will be on exhibit at Monkitree for the months of April and May. “Taking in Maine’s natural beauty with my eyes and heart gives me inspiration to create,” says Catherine. She strives to capture the essence of Maine as she paints, cuts, pieces and stitches familiar landscapes. Whether sailing the coast or hiking in the woods, Catherine’s textile art quilts represent real places. Catherine finds her process adds abstraction to familiar locations, “As I explore the medium of textile painting I am often discovering the balance between abstraction and representation.”
Catherine Worthington is a textile artist living in Brunswick Maine. She has a BFA in textile design from the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth. Catherine’s studio practice consists of painting cloth and composing art quilts as well as designing and creating textiles.
