Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai

   

Offering an unprecedented look at some of the oldest surviving icons from the Byzantine world, an important goal of the online exhibition was to unveil the aura of these ancient relics. I used a gold gild from select icons to achieve a mystical mood and balanced this with modern day photographic images bringing the ancient into the present.

The exhibition received praise from visitors online as well as those who viewed it at the Getty Center.
