Inherent Divinity series being shown this March at Gallery in the Woods

I have been working diligently in the Studio on the next few mixed media works in my Inherent Divinity Series. They will be showing soon at The Gallery in the Wood's Woman's Show. The opening is during the Brattleboro Gallery Walk on Friday, March 4th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

Here is a snippet from my artist statement about the work........

In my work I attempt to create a multi layered symbolic language pulled from the richness of my life experience. I want to confront the viewer and provoke thought. There are multiple meanings a symbol has depending on the viewer. I think of them as cultural-context-based as well as experiential with a personal history attached that precedes the viewer’s interpretation.

In the current mixed media work, based on the concept of Inherent Divinity, I transform the eye and hand into symbols that represent the Divine and the power of that force to be manifested into form through us. This series is more than just an exploration of the divine spark in us all, and the creative process, it is also about the mapping of self.

The common nature of these symbols guarantees that the audience will have multiple perspectives on what is being communicated. This is the human experience of perception which is in reality the essence of what I am exploring here. To punctuate my current topic of Inherent Divinity I also incorporate undercurrents of spirituality, sacred geometry, and mystery.

Congratulations on the exhibit! It's always so interesting to read other artist's statements - I enjoy writing my statements because it helps me to clarify my ideas but it's still hard to have a cohesive statement that gets your point across! Thanks for sharing!

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.
