I came to icon painting consciously. The impetus for this was the theoretical basis. I wanted to make art that makes sense, and the language of icon painting is meaningful and comprehensive. Some say that the icon is a spatial boundary between the visible and invisible world - in that case, the study of sacred art is not just exciting but also responsible.
