The ocean and waves are a daily part of my life, living by the beach in Southern California. The power and ephemeral nature of the waves fascinates me. I had the good fortune to work along side a lifelong surfer and artist who helped me understand the motion of the wave and how to capture it with paint. "Rogue Wave" is one such wave I've created since then. Painting these pieces requires a tremendous amount of physical and mental energy which I believe comes through here. The piece is highly textured.

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.
