An Exhibit of Contemporary Art

by Russian-born Artist Ludmila Pawlowska

What is an Icon?

Traditional and modern icons are sometimes described as "windows to heaven" or a "showing forth of God." The icon's purpose is to represent the divine in a way that beckons the viewer. Traditionally, icons are highly stylized, flat panel paintings that depict a holy being or object. There is little room for artistic license. Almost everything within the image has a symbolic aspect. Icons are considered the Gospel in paint. For 1500 years strict canons and traditional skills have carefully preserved traditional iconography.


The light in an icon does not come from any physical sun, but is divine. It is spiritual light that illumines and transfigures the physical, and is usually depicted in gold leaf. Color in an icon is not only symbolic, but chosen to reflect the spirit for the sake of harmony and visual rhythm.

Mila's distinctive technique includes painting, installation and sculpture using collage on wood panel and presents traditional Russian icons as a source of inspiration for contemporary art. The exhibit will feature 15 traditional icons painted at the workshop of Vassilevsky Monastry in Suzdal, Russia. The works on view will also include large sculptural pieces. Her work is designed to be viewed through the prism of a sacred space, creating a stunning and dramatic visual expression. Ludmila has an expressive dialogue between the temporal and the eternal in her contemporary work as an expression of her emotional response to orthodox icons.
