Sauna Domes, 2013, acrylic and oil on wood
Elizabeth Huey: Radiant Swim
Oh, yes -- give me beachfront motels, turquoise pools, cabanas and coconuts,
flaming heat. Take me there. Now.
Or, take me to Harper's Books in East Hampton where the blazing white sun bears
down on a group of masterful swimscapes by Elizabeth Huey. Being immersed in
these paintings is like vacationing in a Sam Fuller movie where dreamy panoramas
of poolside leisure and boozy, bikini-clad evenings are scorched by light day and night,
as if the sun were afflicted by lens flare.
The paintings -- a blistering mix of flatness and depth -- are electrifying.
