“Icons,” paintings and drawings

“The icon as image in Eastern Europe personified something holy and divine.  These are the things we are in touch with daily, our life experiences: family, children, the wind, the river rocks, the smell of the forests, the sunrise, smiles, and love.  Aren’t these unique? Aren’t these transitional and yet eternal?  Icons in the dictionary are described as: ‘The use of vivid or figurative language to represent objects, actions, ideas.’  For me, they are a visual necessity of the soul to communicate with the world through which it moves, creating a new reality through inner dialog–a creation by which unconscious energy is either freed or stock-piled.” – Kina Bagovska
