PERSISTENT NIGHTMARES: New Abstract Drawings by Andrea Worley

Andrea Worley’s new abstract drawings give spontaneous and energetic form to the frightening nightmares she has experienced—and recorded in detail—over more than 30 years. With their underlying physical, psychological, and sexual tensions, these stark black and white abstractions conjure up the raw and ragged edge between something recognizable and that profound abyss within us all. Each drawing is accompanied by a dated section from the nightmare that gave rise to it. Worley, a native of Chattanooga, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Tennessee and her Master of Fine Arts from East Tennessee State University. Her studio is near Earl, North Carolina. The show will run from May 1st - 22nd.
