The Drawing Project

The Drawing Project at Hampden Studio Gallery Space

This was a really wonderful project and I send out a special thank you to Anne LaPrade Seuthe and Kathleen Cammarata for putting it together.

The Drawing itself was a full body experience.
Being a collaboration, no ownership was involved....A sense of freedom and expansion was present for all the artists who participated (5 of us). For me, I found myself exploring the quality of line. I enjoyed being more expressive in my line work and less exacting. This felt like a big transformation for me. I am now inspired to explore in large drawing format...Maybe I will do one at Vermont Studio this July during my residency.

I have decided to add some close up photos of some mini compositions that were included into the bigger drawing. They were quite beautiful~

Looks wonderful! How fun...are they charcoal? And is that a folded wall??? Congratulations, looks great!

Alicia Hunsicker said...

Hey Bea, The drawing was mostly charcoal..sticks and pencils, with some graphite pencils and powder with some white charcoal pencils as well.

The gallery was actually rectangle shaped with the drawing on 3 sides.
It was too tight a spot to get a photo that captured the whole drawing so I pieced together the photo that you are refering to.
The middle wall is actually flat.
Take care! ~ A

WOW! What a brilliant post. This is really a praiseworthy work. Thanks

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
