Lecture: De Wereld van Iconen
Ive Antonia invites you to get acquainted with her work as an iconographer. In "writing"the icons, Ive follows mainly the Russian Orthodox tradition. The iconographer wants to reproduce the written word expressed in religious texts in a celestial way. An icon is manufactured with egg tempura and natural pigments on a wooden panel that has been treated with layers of chalk. The use of precious metals such as gold and silver emphasizes the divine. The artist will give a lecture in Dutch on May 4th at 7:30 pm.
