Interested in mythology and technology, Trudy Elmore is best known for translating the dramatic narrative and theatrical posturing of classical painting into the digital realm. Based in animation, installation and print, her practice explores issues of impermanence and technological evolution. Her methods characteristically involve advanced 3d rendering techniques of humanoid forms. Elmore says, “with the rise of archetypal figures like the cyborg and A.I. we are being forced to question the ontological gap between nature and technology.” She finds this intersection of spirituality and technology most fascinating.
Based out of Toronto, Canada, Elmore's most notable recent showing was at the Art Gallery of Ontario (spring 2017). She is now translating the work commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario into a virtual reality experience. Elmore was awarded the Governor General Award and won the Emerging Digital Artist Award in 2016. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
