Vermont Studio Residency July 2010: Part 2 - My Studio

I enjoyed a large studio on the second floor of the Barbara White building while at Vermont Studio Center. I couldn't have picked a more perfect studio for myself!...I was very happy there and had wonderful artist neighbors that I will mention in another post.
These are some studio views which include some of the paintings I was working on while there.

I was interested in developing a new body of work based on Orbs. I think of them as the moment in time where dark matter in a field of potential is ignited into being..(transformed or birthed into matter) into our material universe....I have lots of ideas about Manifestation, Creation, and Divinity that I explore in my artwork.

Interestingly enough....In the afternoons on certain days...with a certain kind of light my studio had naturally occurring Orbs on the walls!!
Close ups of the paintings will be posted soon!

You have a certain way of capturing light. It is so elusive, but you can give it's lasting impression on your canvas.
This Vermont studio experience has had a deep impression on your energy, I can hear the difference in your words.
So wonderful that You took advantage of this opportunity!

I've always wanted to do a residency. After seeing the studio you had, I'm going to put an application in for the Hill End Residency here in NSW Australia!

Hello Alicia! I have just "met" you by searching for artist experiences of the VSC as I am a resident for November. I'm curious to glean all I can before I make my own journey!

Sara, Good luck to you as well....VSC is a great place to grow,connect with other artists, and do art. Keep in touch and feel free to email me if you have an questions. ~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.
