New Painting, Untitled at the Moment

It looks as though I am going to have a very, very busy year!  Three solo shows in 2015!  Usually I will do a few group shows too if I am invited but for now the big ones are penciled in.

Currently, I also have a nice selection of paintings being shown at Gallery in the Woods, Brattleboro, VT from my show Nexus.

This is a new painting finished today which will most likely go to the Omega show.  It is 12"x12", acrylic on cradle board.

Metamorphosis: Whole Terrain Journal

I am so pleased to have received my contributor’s copies of Whole Terrain Journal, Metamorphosis, Volume 21
Sometime last year I was asked to contribute some of my artwork for a visual essay on Metamorphosis. I worked with the editors of Whole Terrain who picked out several paintings to include along with a small essay I was asked to write on how Metamorphosis is applied in my work. 

I am so excited to see that they did a 4 page spread in the center of this issue with my contribution.

You can order a copy or explore further at the link below.
Whole Terrain, Antioch University New England’s journal of reflective environmental practice, is dedicated to the experience of those who have chosen the environment as the basis of their professional work. It cultivates reflective thought and mindful awareness in an effort to create a balance between humanity and the Earth.

Metamorphosis is transformation, a significant change occurring over a period of time forever altering a being, object, species, or community.

Contributors of this issue of Whole Terrain explore various metamorphic process from a variety of scales and perspectives, illuminating how we, as humans, experience such transformations

2015 Exhibition at the Omega Institute

Untitled, by Alicia Hunsicker, 2015
5"x7", acrylic on cradle board.
I was honored to have my work invited back to the Omega Institute for the 2015 season. I will be showing on the first floor in the Ram Dass building mid April through October.
I am going to be very busy these next few weeks finishing up a bunch of new paintings for this show.  I am happy to have the inspiration and deadline!

Here is a new 5"x7" painting that I do not yet have a title for.  It's the first painting of 2015!

Happy New Year! xo~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.
