Repouse and Egg Tempera
hand hammered pewter 18" x 20 " 2,800.USD
Valentin Gomez, my spouse and I are both self-taught iconographers and have been quietly working together for 26 years. Valentin's work in hand tooled pewter is called the repousé technique. His master craftsmenship fits perfectly to my hand painted original Byzantine style icons. The techniques of Repouse and egg tempera are a perfect marrige. Our studio is open to visitors in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. Our dream is to add a few new Icons to those existing in the world, hoping that this great sacred art tradition will continue in liturgy and prayer for a long time to come.

Gallery of Contemporary Icon Paintings
Mary Jane Miller has been working on a new collection of contemporary icons called On Holy Ground. The work focuses on care for our planet Earth. “I began working on the collection at Vaughan Park Retreat Center, Auckland NZ while selected for a resident scholarship in September and October of 2019". Christ consciousness is energy outside time and space. For us to see it as such, requires a growing number of Earth images.
Some human beings believe Spirit has a spacial identity felt and understood by humanity on this planet. Others believe that Christ consciousness is energy outside time and space which possibly dictates and validates our place on our planet. Either way, I like the idea that there is an energetic intelligence manifesting the universe.
