Opening Reception: Friday May 16th 6:00 – 9:00 PM
Elizabeth Huey’s paintings and collages reflect a broad spectrum of quandaries surrounding humanity and healing. Luminous pairs exchange intimate caresses while individuals immerse themselves in remedies and recreation. Myriad forces — nature, architecture, and history — impact the minds and perceptions of each protagonist. Chaos and order collide and coalesce in the paint handling and spatial constructs. Excavating imagery from a diverse array of sources, Huey continually draws from her own photographs as well as her ever-expanding collection of found photos.
Born in Virginia, Elizabeth Huey presently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Before obtaining her MFA from Yale University, Huey earned a BA in Psychology from George Washington University and studied painting at both the Marchutz School in Aix-en-Provence, France and the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture in New York City. She has been awarded an Artist Research Fellowship from the Smithsonian Institution, a travel fellowship to Italy through Johns Hopkins University, a Terra Foundation of American Art Fellowship and Residency in Giverny, France and most recently, an Artist Residency at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY.
