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.
