Supernova

Supernova, Alicia Hunsicker, 2015
12" x 12" x 1.5", acrylic on cradle board

A little studio update:
I have been painting but not as proficiently as I would like. I am still waiting for my new glasses and stronger lens prescription to arrive (any day now!).    I have been working on a large 30"x30" painting which will be done soon and I finished this one to the left "Supernova" this past week. 

I will be having an interview released with Whole Terrain Journal on this coming Monday the 15th.  I will put a link in when it is posted. If you are interested in reading other interviews that I have done over the years you can find them at this Link.

Musica Universalis

Musica Universalis, Alicia Hunsicker, 2015
12x12, acrylic on cradle board
 Painting has been slow going over the last month as I have discovered that I need to upgrade my eyeglass prescription. I am painting much smaller and more detailed panels these days and maybe that has something to do with the amount of eye strain that I have been experiencing. I hope that when the new glasses arrive it will improve the length of my painting sessions and I can make up for some lost time toward my next show deadline.  I have been really enjoying weaving these lines and forms into a multi-dimentional space.

I am pleased to finally present the painting I have been working on for the last several weeks. It is the next painting in the 2015 Cosmic Bloom series, titled:
 "Musica Universalis" (Music of the Spheres in Latin)


from Wikipedia:
Musica universalis (lit. universal music, or music of the spheres) or Harmony of the Spheres is an ancient philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of celestial bodies—the Sun, Moon, and planets—as a form of musica (the Medieval Latin term for music). This "music" is not usually thought to be literally audible, but a harmonic and/or mathematical and/or religious concept. The idea continued to appeal to thinkers about music until the end of the Renaissance, influencing scholars of many kinds, including humanists.

Galileo

Galileo, 5" x7.5",acrylic on cradle board
Alicia Hunsicker, 2015
 
I took the week off after delivering my work to the show at Omega and now I am getting back to work painting for my next show at the Geissler Gallery.  I just finished this little one (5" x 7.5") that I am calling "Galileo" after
Galileo Galilei, an Italian physicist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer, and philosopher. 

Galileo played a major role in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance. His achievements include improvements to the telescope and consequent astronomical observations. Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy  the "father of modern physics", and the "father of science".

Mapping a New World

Mapping a New World, Alicia Hunsicker, 2015
2"x12", acrylic on cradle board


I have been painting non-stop getting ready for my show at the Omega Institute!

I have several new paintings now listed on my website in the 2015 portfolio section.

I am calling my show
and this series of work
Cosmic Bloom(s). 


Its been a long, long winter here in Massachusetts! I have enjoyed bring in the bright color and flower type aspects into this new work. Here is a piece I finished today on the first day of Spring!

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.
