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

Small Paintings for the Holidays


 I love doing these small 5x7 paintings! I need to create more of these little jewels! I am just about out of stock now with only one left in inventory at Gallery in the Woods, in Brattleboro, VT and none left in the studio!

The one pictured here to the left, "Spherical Melody " found a home today! Thank you to the patron who bought it from Gallery in the Woods.  


This new painting to the right "Golden Celestial Bloom" also a 5 x 7, found a home this
week in Germany!  Creating an intuitive painting specifically for a patron is an exciting process.   I will be sending it out this week! 


If you are interested in ordering a 5x7 painting please email me at aliciahunsicker@verizon.net.  I can finish a few more before the Holidays if you are looking for a special gift. They are $300 usd each, plus shipping if applicable.

A Glimpse into the Studio

Work in progress in Alicia's studio.
Lots of new work being created in the Studio this October and November.  The painting process has begun.  I am playing with organic plant forms overlaid with fractal forms in  energetic cosmic fields.
The merging of earth and cosmic energy.

I am also starting to make some smaller pieces again.  I was thinking for the holiday season...but alas it is already upon us!   Never the less, I will be working on some 5x7's  8x10's and 12x12's. 

I will also be making a new page for my website where one can browse the work available for purchase. This will be a page separate from the portfolios to make it easier for those patrons who are looking to add to their collections..or to start one!


Studio visits are welcome at this time. Please email if you would like to stop in and take a peek at the new work and browse through the current studio inventory. 

I would also like to remind everyone that I have a nice selection of paintings currently at Gallery in the Woods in Brattleboro, VT.

Illumination of the Quantum Field

Illumination of the Quantum Field, Alicia Hunsicker, 2014
Illumination of the Quantum Field found a new home through the show at the Omega Institute.

I am so pleased! I loved  sharing my work with the Omega community for the 2014 season and I am sad to see this show end!

If you are near or visiting Rhinebeck, NY this will be the last week for the Quintessence: Three Visions show.

I will be returning to campus  this weekend to pick up the rest of the work. 

The catalog for this show is still available through Amazon.com at this link: Quintessence: Three Visions
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.
