It’s a sad truth that the first contact we have with an artwork these days is usually through a screen. Digitally manipulated images are used to get us to the museum or into a gallery while curators often sift through hundreds of online images before seeing the real thing. The artist Jeff Elrod is of a generation that grew up with the screen and has made the relationship between digitized abstraction and corporeal painting the main focus of his practice. Replacing the mouse with the brush and employing image-editors like Photoshop or Illustrator, Elrod then often uses tape and acrylic to tether his works to materiality. A new set of his digital/analog paintings can be seen at Luhring Augustine and are based on the visual stimuli of Brion Gysin’s Dream machine. Through October 22.
