December Studio Update

new work in progress
Alicia Hunsicker, 2013/14
As we enter the holiday season and the new year I find myself re-evaluating the direction of my work. Lots of internal shifts are happening now and time is passing by so fast!
I am not surprised that my painting pace has been slow....though I am loving the new work that is starting to emerge!

I do have a few new pieces almost finished and they will be debuting at an exhibition held at Hampden Gallery, on the UMass, Amherst Campus this January, details to be announced soon.

The Xerox transfer workshops have been going great! I have been hired recently by two different colleges to present at private events and other public dates are in the works. There is even a possibility that a local cultural council might fund a workshop next year.

I did not receive any of the grants I applied for to help fund my lofty ideas and new work.  I am actually quite relieved because my painting pace has been relaxed and my proposals were quite challenging.  I am ok with this as other exciting projects and shows have filled in for next year which will also be just as challenging  but in a different way.  There is even a strong possibility that I will be showing in NYC for the first time.

Wishing you all a very happy holiday season! xo~Alicia

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.
