Elizabeth Huey‘s paintings explore human connection and healing. Central to Huey’s practice is an engagement with passion and delirium and our society’s extraordinary attempts to create or cure these conditions. Her figures are often immersed in scenes of rehabilitation and recreation.

Huey draws imagery from her own photographs as well as an ever expanding collection of found photos, googled snapshots and historical research to delve into the complexities of her subjects. One gets the sense that myriad forces – from nature and architecture, to culture and history – are at work in the minds of each protagonist. The surprising spatial arrangements and disjunctive scale shifts in Huey’s work support a hypnagogic sense of seeing things from the inside out. By bringing together these disparate players in the worlds of her paintings, she creates dynamics, both visual and psychological, that are altogether new.

Stuart Holland is a visual artist living and working in Boise, Idaho. He is a graduate of Boise State University and earned his BFA with an emphasis in printmaking in 2014. Drawing influence from psychology, various spiritual traditions, psychedelics, and quantum physics, Stuart’s work is the realization of an enigmatic liminal realm.

Within this enigmatic plane, Stuart’s work explores the concepts of Self, consciousness, and the ultimate nature of Reality. Riddled with vast landscapes, monolithic architecture, and thought provoking voids, it is often difficult to discern if these environments exist in the physical realm, are mental fabrication, alternate realities, or are glimpses into a higher dimension of consciousness.
