Gouache and oil pastel on paper | 2018
Inspired by a fascination and a lack of understanding with the functionality and inner workings of her own body, Elrod translates the internal into abstract works that reference landscapes and romantic architecture. The idea of going beneath the skin is meant to carry many meanings and ask questions around the ‘universal’ experience of living in a body.

“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.”
