Byzantine Faces

The Byzantine Collection

Inspired by Byzantine icon painting I have produced a series of  modern secular icons. I was aiming for them as simple as possible whilst maintaining the essence of the original style.  I wanted to covey the ‘divine’ in each of us rather than in others as the original medieval icons, the latter continue to be worshiped to this day. We are all unique, wonderful individuals capable of amazing things and I am trying to portray that simple idea, hence the gold is in the eyes not surrounding the face.
