Galleria Paolo Curti & Co. is pleased to presents an exhibition by an American artist Jeff Elrod.

Born in Irving, Texas in 1966, B.F.A from North Texas University, Jeff Elrod has spent periods of study as an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kusten of Amsterdam and the Chinati Foundation of Marfa, Texas. In 1998 he received the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award.

His paintings based on digital technology are composed of irregular, monochrome images interrupted by vivid, apparently random lines, the synthesis of an intentionally low-tech approach to painting, which Elrod executes with a computer mouse in wide color fields. These digital paintings express a certain freedom in the midst of chaos, a clear elegance, and the pleasure of painting made by a virtual hand that harks back to an abstract image with a clear modernist matrix.

For Elrod the computer is a neutral tool that can be utilized to create pleasing abstractions, exploring the dissonance between art history and electronic imagery.

Jeff Elrod has shown work at the Pat Hearn Gallery of New York and in group shows in public spaces like the Kunsthalle, Berlin; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; and recently in the show Bitstreams at the Whitney Museum in New York. Jeff Elrod lives and works in New York. The exhibition features a series of paintings created specifically for this event.
