About > Bio
Georgia Elrod’s paintings are cultivated through many ink and guache studies. Her recent work began with a desire to interpret bodily function and experience, to question and understand our ungraspable insides, our fleeting outsides. Positing physical identity as living abstraction, the imagery can be both known and unidentifiable, interior and exterior; the body is composed of ideas.
Georgia Elrod is a New York City based artist and painter. Her work has been exhibited in New York and abroad, in solo exhibitions at Novella Gallery and John Davis Gallery, as well as in group exhibitions at spaces including the Horticultural Society of New York, Momenta Art, Trestle Projects, and RH+ Gallery in Istanbul. Georgia has been awarded several residencies, most recently at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA), the WAAW Residency in Senegal and at Arteles Creative Center in Finland.
