The art of icon-painting is currently enjoying a significant revival in many parts of the Christian world, spreading beyond its place of origin in the Eastern Orthodox Church

Icons portray sacred figures in their ‘heavenly likeness’, imbued with a sense of stillness and inner light.  

Andrew Paterson, an art historian as well as an artist, has practised the traditional technique of icon-painting in egg tempera for the past ten years, and this exhibition features his recent portrait-icons of Christ, Mary the Mother of God, the Archangel Michael and various saints, as well as an icon of the Annunciation.
