Thought Forms

Three weeks out from my last leg surgery, I am now making leaps and bounds in my recovery process. With the wonderful weather this week in the North East I am going on daily walks up my scenic dirt road. I can’t tell you how good it is to be out doors and moving again. This whole experience has been a lesson in endurance. However I can say it was an experience filled with unexpected gifts as well as a huge change in perspective.

My studio time has been consumed with various writing projects. From grant proposals, residency applications, and interviews, I have had no time to paint! Though I am happy with the results.

If you haven’t yet seen the article that came out in SuperConsciousness Magazine, Please check it out. It will give you an insight into the new direction I am going in.

A friend and collector of my work came by to wish me well and decided to add Thought Forms to her private collection. She wrote to me afterward saying " I LOVE my new painting! It sits in a space where I see it all the time, and I consciously look at it all the time. It's like after a while I will have memorized all my favorite parts. It has made my living room a truly visually interesting place to be."

So while I was physically down and in isolation for the last
8 months or so….My work has gotten some high visibility with the show at Gallery in the Woods and the unbelievable press the new work has
generated. It’s strange how life gets balanced out. I am in gratitude and am reminded of my wonderful belief that Anything is Possible!

SuperConsciousness Magazine Interview

I recently teamed up with SuperConsciousness Magazine to do an interview/article about my paintings and creative process.
by Paulina Amador became available on-line yesterday.
SuperConsciousness is a wonderful Magazine that explores Science, Spirituality, and Human Potential.
The article starts: An artist can be a scientist when it comes down to building the blocks of a new reality through a canvas, where colors and textures act as the bond of subatomic particles. Life is a gigantic piece of fabric, where we display our thoughts and create, moment by moment. To read more click on the link above.

The Past, Future, and Particle Colliders

I have had the fortunate experience recently to view my work through new eyes. This fresh perspective is through the eyes of Science. I have always thought of my work as Spiritual but as my awareness and interest unfolded I realized that
science is interested and asking the same questions I am exploring in my own artistic investigations.

I have found the natural unfolding of my work to be
at times eerie in the way my past interests connect with my future interests.

Here is one recent example…….a few years ago I went to China
to work with the Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai
to present a project called “
Eye to Eye”.

When I arrived home I became even more obsessed with eye imagery and did some really beautiful eye portraits. Right now I am really passionate about doing a collaboration with a scientist and eventually visiting either the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (Switzerland) or the Fermilab collider detector here in the USA.

Particle collider detectors are the eyes scientists use to visualize the smallest building blocks of nature. It is quite amazing!

Here are photos of the particle colliders at both CERN and Fermilab side by side with my eye paintings..........

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.
