Stemming from observation and memory, Georgia Elrod's works are cultivated through many gouache and mixed media works on paper. The forms are cumulative and often unpredictable, their meanings are open-ended. The recent work began with a desire to interpret bodily function and experience, to question and understand our ungraspable insides. Positing physical identity as a kind of living abstraction, the imagery can be both known and unidentifiable. By letting go of anatomical rules the figures become more like poetic spaces.
