About The Source
An avid collector of photographs (found prints and her own snapshots), artist Elizabeth Huey uses her archive as source material to delve into the complexities of her subjects. Her work is a reflection on a broad spectrum of quandaries surrounding humanity and healing. It is much more than a singular depiction of one being; it is comprised of complex lived truths, affected by landscape, architecture, circumstantial histories and interpersonal relationships. A painting that shares the exhibition’s title, is inspired by the story of Father Yod, the founder of the Source Family, a controversial cult attracting runaway women, and supported by the earnings of the L.A. health food restaurant, The Source. For this exhibition, Huey has created work that examines the role of widowed women in Archer’s Freemason history, and the Maypole (a symbol of fertility), highlighting her interest in the acknowledgement of unknown histories and the accomplishments of women.
