Art and Worship and the world of Iconography

I spent 8 weeks this fall taking a graduate course in World Arts. It was intense, and somewhat poorly timed (yay first trimester…), but I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to do some first hand research on Eastern Orthodox iconography. It was fascinating to dig into a topic I’ve been surrounded by for the past three years, but haven’t really had time to investigate much. As part of my research into the resurgence of iconography in the post-Soviet landscape I was able to visit the studio of the wonderful and incredibly skilled Vladimir Grygorenko. I thought I’d share a peak here on the blog. No 15 page paper required of the rest of you! If you want to see more of his work, check out
