Mary Alice Treworgy has been painting since her childhood, and in recent years has found inspiration for her work on the Maine island of Monhegan. In her artist statement she writes: "I want to define the architectural and figural landscape with geometry, subtle values, sometimes idiosyncratic colors and by flattening the picture plane. These images are identifiable, but leave out the prosaic, trite and clichéd. A critic once said my paintings show a strong will: a will to pursue a concept to its fruition and no diversion from my goal. Sometimes a wry sense of humor is present, sometimes privacy, sometimes serenity, but always emotion and deep feeling. As time goes by, I find that, in my paintings, even less is described of the landscapes and buildings and more is shown of the innate structure and essence of the subject."
