Pittsburgh-born artist Cory Elder presents his homecoming solo exhibition, [of], at Artists Image Resource starting this Saturday.

Elder’s narrative paintings are somewhat Dali-esque, representing thoughts on faith, perception, truth and intent.

Elder studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated in 2013. He then worked as an assistant to both printmaker Stefan Hoffmann and visual artist David Ellis. He’s also worked under sculptor Robert Shure, in Boston, where he learned classical clay sculpting techniques and where his transition from realistic to abstract painting began.

Last summer, Elder returned to Pittsburgh, where he's a part-time AIR staffer while continuing his own professional practice.

According to press materials, [of] was influenced by Elder’s realist background and is a visual story of how his artwork evolved from a personal mythology into an invented language, and ultimately to abstractions.

The exhibit opens Sat., Feb. 21 with a free public reception from 6-10 p.m. Elder will speak at 7 p.m.

The exhibit will remain on display through Mar. 28. Regular gallery hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Artists Image Resource is located at 518 Foreland St., North Side.
