"Anna Torma's new work continues to explore dispersion and its affect of uncertainty, particularly by playing with transparency. In her re-concieved process, the layers function more independently. Using combinations of embroidery, printing and painting, her drawings on layers of various transparencies fade in and out as the layers are allowed to pull apart or are stitched tightly together. Since she can also re-shuffle layers or even omit some, the certainty of a final image or "destination" for a piece falls apart. As viewers, you and I immerse our senses and desires in screens of organza and fine silk. You want to feel them and make them move. We can joyously re-perform Torma's erosion of the architectures of figure and narrative, opening our selves to the pleasures of uncertainty."!
