Alicia Dunn

Alicia Dunn, b. 1960, Havana, Cuba. A contemporary abstract painter, Alicia creates spirited paintings which capture the energy of the natural world. Her work springs from the well of her unconscious and takes her to unpredictable places. Through the use of vibrant color, layering and textural techniques her work achieves a luminosity that is both invigorating and serene. Getting lost in the tranquil and luminous colors, the viewer can connect to the motion of the waves, the swiftness of the wind, and the promise of a new day. Like nature itself, each painting shifts with the light and the perspective of the viewer.

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 a weathered effect that reflects the process of the painting’s creation. Raised in Brooklyn, NY, Alicia has lived in Los Angeles and San Diego throughout her adult life. She currently lives outside of San Francisco with her husband and lab-mix Tosh. Her work is collected internationally. Residential and commercial commissions accepted.
