Gouache and mixed media on paper | 2023
Multimedia artist Georgia Elrod’s newest evocative series is steeped in mystery and sensuality. It is perhaps best described in the artist’s own words:
“Creating my ink drawings feels like I am revealing imagery that lurks in the corners of my consciousness, like I'm flirting with myself in order to uncover ideas that are waiting to be revealed. These works contain inquiries; I aim for them to ask more questions than they answer. I'm creating space for subtlety, colors, sensuality and subversion. I enjoy being surprised by my work, their meanings unfold for me. The works express fleeting moments in time within and between bodies, their narratives often embedded with autobiographical meaning.”

“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.”
