About Chuck Worth

Originally from Arizona, Chuck Worth now lives and works in Hollywood, Florida, with his two cats, Puzzle and Kiyo. He originally trained as a poet and earned an MFA from Arizona State University. After working for several years as an art librarian, however, his focus shifted to the visual arts.

He is currently working on a series, 'The Furious Sleepers', which explores our perception of sharks and sharks' relationship to their surrounding environments metaphorically by blurring the boundary between image and text. This series is being made using handmade paper, photographs, and acrylic paint.

The nautical themed series also includes paintings of fishes, corals and other marine life. Corals, pinks, blues and greens wash together in acrylics and photographs together with kan'ji (Chinese characters) and petroglyphs to transform the canvas into an ocean.

Each photograph was captured and digitally altered by the artist himself. Each painting or multimedia work of a fish, a coral, sea creature or other aquatic element follows the method and theme of an original large shark work. Some of the kanji are rendered free-hand, others are literally copied and pasted onto the canvas.

In addition to working on 'The Furious Sleepers', he also distresses furniture and is rewriting The Book of Numbers as a mixed-media collage memoir of the Vietnam War. His favorite artist is B. Fra Angelico.
