Icons are sacred images representing the saints, Christ, Mary & narrative scenes. Dating to the 4th C & venerated among Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox & Catholic Churches, these images follow set traditions with symbolic meaning, attention to detail, strict colour palettes and compositions.
ICON at Boom Gallery will present the work of five artists who have learnt the techniques and requirements of Icon painting, each having undertaken extensive training and respond to the traditions in their own way.
