Liz Huston Exhibiion: With Voices Like Honey
Liz Huston has a new exhibition coming up, With Voices Like Honey, at Gallery at 3517 West Sunset, in Los Angeles. The opening reception is on Saturday Oct. 12th, from 6-9 PM and the show is on view through November 16th, 2013.
We’ve loved her photo montages for years and they keep getting better and better. Mixing vintage with new, found images with her original photography – Liz has found her home. Creating elegant, heartfelt and beautifully emotive works with a dash of coveted surrealism. Tastefully edited, thoughtfully composed, her works are time capsules which cross from one era to another – seamlessly binding themes which know no boundary – love, romance, loss, remembrance and the general ache of transitive human life.
Liz’s photomontages are created through a lengthy mixed media process… her photography is the result of any number of alternative processes; including the deceptively complex pinhole camera. She has been a professional photographer for nearly two decades. Largely self taught, she has supplemented her knowledge with photography courses, but the bulk of her knowledge came from the action and reaction process of learning hands on. Her color palette is influenced by antique postcards, colors that are subdued for the most part, yet every now and then a brilliant sparkling blue or a deeply saturated crimson will pop in for a surprising and stunning emphasis.
Liz has also published three books of her fine art photography over the last 5 years.
“Sacred – New Orleans Funerary Grounds” was published just a day before Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. Through ‘Sacred”, Liz raised money to help the victims and cemeteries restore by donating the profits of her books to various charities, including the New Orleans based cemetery preservation group, Save Our Cemeteries.
