"Kelly Worman’s new work is a lesson in frantic expression. Every mark is pregnant with the want to explore and boggle. There is a muscular and emotive quality to the work. It appears labored yet instantaneous simultaneously. In applying chance and intuitive improvisation to her mark making, there is an immediacy present in her exploration of gesture, color, rhythm, and space. A twisting and shifting of the plane is made evident by varying weights throughout the panel, furthering the push for disorientation. Her work is at once a delight to observe as well as a dizzying trial- a difficult dichotomy to achieve."
