Blue Bananas


Far x Wide is pleased to present BLUE BANANAS, featuring works by Liz Ainslie, Susan Carr, Ryan Thayer Davis, Georgia Elrod, Kimia Ferdowsi Kline, and Zach Seeger. The title for this project was inspired by a science experiment where bananas placed on a table in the afternoon sun appeared yellow but emitted more blue light than any other frequency*. The artists in this selection use color in ways that acknowledge the possibility that yellow can secretly be blue.

We looked for the unpredictable, unexpected, unimaginable, unknowable— imagery that cannot be simply defined.

Brightness, joyfulness and bloom
With one moment you refresh the room
Moments pass of light and color
Meander through heart and mind
Lines and line, denote the time
And we would have no other
Graces perfect the art, a boon
To lift the spirits in our gloom
For stark and hollow, the winter tree
But in the ground now lays the seed
Which in months time will sate our need
And freedom growing, will itself be free

Underdonk is pleased to present Private Practice, a group exhibition of work by nineteen artists, each presenting a selection of their studio practice. Comprised of sketches, notes, objects of inspiration, shrines, postcards, and unseen drawings with completed works, this exhibition explores the line between private and public. Giving the artist permission to show what one would often keep hidden or as an idea not fully processed but for further fruition in another work, this show lays bare the unfolding thinking practice in the studio. The artist is a work in progress, perpetually searching, changing, and staying the same. We are gatherers, hoarders, and historians.

Solo show at Novella Gallery, LES NYC


Georgia Elrod
Around the Corner
May 9th - June 1st, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday May 9th 6-9 PM
Novella Gallery 164 Orchard St. New York, NY 10002
Gallery Hours: Thursday-Sunday 1-6PM
NOVELLA is pleased to present Around the Corner, a solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Georgia Elrod. Painted from imagination, these works are a translation of the artist’s memory and subconscious. They present glimpses of interiors, and within and beyond them, moments of absence and reflection. The work has been inspired by the complexities and unanswered questions that surround the artist's own family history. As the past is navigated and interpreted, these 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.
Elrod makes many drawings in ink on paper and these often inspire larger paintings. These luminous works have a light-blasted quality; thinly painted surfaces subtly suggest edges, layers, and the spaces in between. Paint has been added but also intentionally rubbed out, creating form through removal. This subtraction, along with the addition of drawing in pastel has become an increasingly important aspect of the artist’s process.
Around the Corner presents stages, openings, and visions of a world quietly reverberating with something just out of reach. The work suggests a sense of anticipation and invites the viewer to explore.
