Stemming from observation and memory, Georgia Elrod develops the imagery in her work through many gouache, ink and mixed media works on paper. The forms are cumulative and often unpredictable, their meanings are open-ended. Her compositions contemplate where and how individual physicality melds with the world around us. Elrod’s work uses familiar and unidentifiable imagery to imagine physical identity as a kind of visual and experiential abstraction. They are embedded with autobiographical meaning.
