Icons rely heavily on symbols in order to communicate a higher, spiritual meaning. As an iconographer over the last years, I’ve been blessed through the process of creating every one of them. This album shows some of the most recent pieces I have written.
Icons to me are a constant struggle. First, because the medium dries fast and is often hard to deal with. Second, because I feel compelled to render shapes realistically, and turn the symbol into a simulacrum. Therefore, the icon-writing process is a constant struggle against what I want and what I see as pleasing in Christian imagery. Maybe that is why the results that emerge from this process are seen as a source of divine light in people’s lives.
