I have been working to repaint the studio and transform it into a better working space.  Surprisingly, since I am not normally a fan of white walls, I am very happy with the make over.  It is clean, fresh, and sparse.
 I took out a lot of the items I have collected over the years and kept only a small portion of them to put in the altar and business area of the studio.  The rest is a blank slate with areas to start new work and the ideas are pouring in!

These are some photos of the new paint combo along with my resident studio cat.  It’s very different from the old studio look… more sophisticated perhaps? I tried to stay neutral so that the space would not affect my color usage on my new work.

Parallel to my studio renewal is my physical renewal.  The on-going recovery from breaking my leg last year is going well and I am getting out a lot more and for longer periods of time. My first road trip was just this week to Mass MoCA and I will be venturing out to the Mutton and Mead festival this weekend.  I am thrilled to be moving forward again.  Additionally, I have received great news that I am the recipient of an Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Inc. Emergency Grant Award. 
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.
