Black Velvet is a collection of personal statements written and cultivated over a period of time spanning roughly five years. Elrod translates intangible experiences of contemporary American life into concrete, sharable pieces of visual language. Employing only one typeface and one color, he strips personal experience into its most potent, bare form. This collection of work is constantly in a state of flux and is not meant to be factual or definitive—rather, it is simply an indulgent snapshot of an open-ended, ongoing process.
