16th March 2nd Sunday in Lent
'The Transfiguration' (Holy Trinity Church, Butte, Montana 2003-06)
'Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them
up a high mountain where they could be alone. There in their presence
he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became
as white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they
were talking with him………….' (extract from Matthew 17: 1-9)
Icons are 'written' as opposed to painted. The role of the Iconographer
is to convey the word of God: they are theologians in God's service.
There is no room for self expression as their work is a visual connection
Heaven & Earth.
