Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Georgia Elrod.

Elrod remarks her interest in examining and presenting an inside-out view of the body, "in a way that hopefully anybody can see and understand... then it becomes a poetic space." The press release for Elrod's 2014 exhibition at Novella Gallery notes that her "paintings have become extrapolations, bearing witness to a history through allusion and suggestion. They attempt to include the viewer in the conversation as they both fill in the blanks and create new ones. In this recent work there lingers the anticipation of potential narratives."
