Modern Icon #2 Acrylic on canvas 36″X48″
This painting is a composite icon of an apostle,angel,shepherd and Christ figure combined and reinterpreted in a modern style that takes it’s basic geometry from Byzantine iconography combined with the impression that of stained glass in relation to it’s cell structure.Gold leafing was used on the highlights.This was a commissioned work and at the clients request is a little more figurative that what I am accustom to creating. All the same I am very happy with the results and being Greek in origin it was a pleasure to reinterpret something that is reflective of the culture that I was raised in
This is a stunning piece of work! What a genius reinterpretation of Church iconography. I couldn’t help but leave a comment after seeing this on your website.
