Modern Icons

These icons made in a modern style utilize the ancient and universal symbolic language of sacred icons and reconfigure elements of this language in a new visual context. A common symbolic motif in this style is the bare wooden background, which alludes to the wood of the life-saving Cross that is ever present in the lives of the saints and shines through their sanctity as seen in their partly unpainted halos. This section of the gallery is an exciting exploration into the many manifestations of this symbolic language and takes inspiration from the modern Renaissance of icon painting present in Lviv, Ukraine.
