This piece was inspired by a trip to the rugged northern California coastline where I spent a week in January marveling at the colors, the roughness of the water, and the tumult of nature.  Using a sophisticated color palette, this painting is filled with energy, motion and texture. The piece is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Alicia

Alicia Dunn’s abstract paintings are affected by a confluence of elements: the weather, her mood, and the properties of her materials. “Ceding control to these things allows the magic to happen,” the artist explains. Alicia's paintings capture the unique energy of nature, particularly that of the beach where she lives. Staring into the tranquil and luminous colors of her work, the viewer connects to shape of the waves, the swiftness of the wind, and the beginning of a day. Alicia is inspired by the simple things in life. Her awe of nature’s perfection and the thrill of constant discovery are conveyed in her art. Alicia works in water-based acrylic paint, and has developed a technique using blending gels to achieve not only rich color and texture, but also an eroded, weathered effect that reflects the process of the painting’s creation. Like nature itself, each painting shifts with the viewer, chronicling time through movement and beauty.
