Icon Exhibition

"Spirit Matters" an exhibition of icons by graduates of The Prince's School of Traditional Arts Diploma in Icon Painting, 2013-2016, taught by Aidan Hart. The three year part-time course, taught in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, gives students a firm foundation in the technique and theology of icon painting, one of the most demanding of liturgical arts. Students are taught how to prepare a gessoed panel, to gild, and to paint icons in egg tempera. Natural pigments of earth and stone, many bought from Cornelissen, are tempered with egg yolk to produce the luminous icons that you see in this exhibition. But before progressing to coloured works students first study form by executing numerous studies in monochrome.
