Oil on paper | 2021
Georgia Elrod’s practice centers on the subject of the body. The anatomical form serves simply as a jumping off point, as she paints bodies both figuratively and abstractly. Her recent works tend toward more recognizable forms: portraits of Elrod herself and other imagined subjects can be seen in repose, fervor, or giving birth. In these dense yet open-ended works on paper, the physical form is both questioned and revered. Internal and external landscapes act as suggestive, poetic spaces.

“By letting go of anatomical rules, the works become more like poetic spaces. I’ve been cultivating pictorial simplifications of body parts and using them to complicate notions of a “universal” experience of living in a body.”
