The Icons lift the viewer to a higher level on the issue of thouhts and feelings.
They are characterized by sencerity. The colors have its special significance in icon painting, gold symbolizes the divine. The dark blue color symbolizes the night while lighter blue, the sky. The red color symbolizes sunrise, the sun’s meeting with darkness. The first icon ever created was a self-portrait.
The icons I create tell a story in text taken from a series of interviews, conducted with various women I’ve met. The project reveals stories from real life concerning issues of belonging and identity.
This is an ongoing project.
