Hand of God

Painting Hands in IconographyArt and IconsThe deliberate and understood presence of painting hands in iconography is crucial to the content and message of the image. There is ample information for study and reflection as young iconographers begin their understanding and intention. Iconography is an ancient language and painting Byzantine hands say a great deal. They are a delight to paint and there are few icons…See More

Artist / Personal Statement
How do Artists transform ideas into our work?
The question is, how can the work transform me into an idea. Iconographers are always trying to paint what we cannot see. Iconographers live in a twisted dimension: as you paint you theoretically become the image. Internally iconographers believe “beauty will save the world”, the beauty of humankind and our potential to see the divine in all things.
Accomplishments / CV
For 20 years I made money, it was a job and a service. I messed around in plenty of mediums and treated clients honestly. I gave them what I thought they wanted as best and creatively as I could. I said yes to everything and every medium, murals, weaving, furniture, etc. At the age of 40, I was invited to an icon writing workshop with an orthodox priest. That first icon encounter swept me up like a wave. From then on, I was driven to reproduce these ancient images.

I appreciate your comments and am happy to be a friend.  (I am very guilty of not spending as much time on the CIVA site as is ideal.)  I enjoyed seeing your lovely work and your "silent meditative" comments regards aspects of working are also true for me!! You may also like the work of Heidi Petersen, a friend of mine. May God bless you.
