Just in time for the Advent and Christmas season, this stunning exhibit features mosaic icons created in the tradition of Byzantine masters. Exquisitely fashioned from tiny bits of colored glass fit together to bring forth a divine image, the icons are created by Oksana Prokopenko, a Ukrainian artist. They offer radiant reminders that, despite the darkness in our world, a Light still shines and is not overcome.
About the Artist
Oksana Prokopenko was born and raised in Ukraine. She was educated at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, one of the top three universities in Ukraine, and at NYU. She studied formal art practices at NYU, SVA and with Philip Vanderhyden. Oksana has a cross-disciplinary practice in which micromosaics, painting and sculpture overlap. Rooted in the ancient contemplative practice of icon-writing and inspired by the current research in chaos theory, Oksana’s work explores the interaction of human and divine. Oksana's artworks have been acquired into the permanent collections of museums in the USA and Italy, religious communities and private collections. Exhibition curated by Patricia McGuinness.
