Kellie Romany's paintings look like innocent pours, but what is portrayed is almost old time "righteous" 60's feminism... like Hanna Wilke's gum sculpture or Carolee Schneemennn's performance photos. While extremely elegant, hovering in the background is a portal that oozes the hidden made visible, of the feminine body. - Phyllis Bramson (SAIC Painting Faculty)
