Alicia Hunsicker invites you to view her work along side work from powerful women artists from around the world. She presents her mixed media, “Inherent Divinity” series. Using universal symbols as a visual language ; a Mapping of Self, with the intention to interact with viewers through multiple levels of meaning. Ultimately, Hunsicker’s work evokes spirituality and mystery.

Nayana Glazier contributes often unsettling and perceptive black and white paintings of pivotal psychological moments in the lives of women and girls. The almost cinematic play on motion creates an urgent, visceral experience of women’s collective life.

Denise Beaudet offers three of twelve large panels from her Roots to Resistance project, These are vigorous and inspiring symbolic portraits of women activists working across the globe. Posters and postcards which create a visual “voice” from the project have been internationally distributed, and the project has partnered with educational and prison groups across the country.

Sculptor Sara Pogue creates visionary beings that symbolize the intersection of earth,human, and beast—archetypal witnesses, guardians and mystics inspired by her study of psychology,Buddhism, and naturalist exploration.

Samantha Crawford shows visionary images with pen and ink on paper. These detailed pieces evoke illustration,and story line is the transpersonal experience in nature.

Gwen Murphy is known for her humorous and creepy sculptures of Surrealist Twin pairs of vintage shoes.She explores painted shadow pictures for this show. All of the figures have bare feet!

No comments:

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.
