Acrylic on canvas, 43x36” (110х90 cm), 2012
Under the guidance and blessings of my spiritual teacher, I embarked on a unique journey with Icons. With profound respect for the traditional Icons and their rich history, I dared to explore their composition, hues, and forms, presenting them through an abstract lens. The essence, energy, composition, and colors of the Icons remained intact; the only transformation was in the interpretation.
Yet, the heart of my artistic endeavor has always revolved around people and their intricate connections, both with one another and with the Divine. My icon-painting transcends the confines of any specific religious affiliation. It extends an open invitation to people of all faiths, backgrounds, and beliefs, welcoming them into the world of my icon-paintings.
