THIS STORY CONTAINS EXPLICIT CONTENT
After Wake is a collection of visual fragments & anonymous female subjects from the artist’s daily life. Separated from the minutia of McElroy’s lived reality, however, the photographs also allow for an endless drift of fictitious suggestion & voyeurism. After Wake can be a half-‐alert morning recollection of disjointed dreams. Or it’s a catalog of contradictory eyewitness accounts. It may also be something like the outtakes from a B movie chronicling pleasure, grotesque beauty, infidelity, addiction, abuse & redemption. In short, After Wake is a collection of provoking photographs by McElory that eschews concept & meaning in favor of imagination & a stream of inchoate ideas.
