National Recognition of Fabric Mosaic Marian Art

Golden Intercessor exhibited in Episcopal Church USA, national juried art show, December, 2012.
ECVA’s  beautiful seasonal exhibit, Mary, Mother Of Our Tribe  is a ‘telling and re-telling of the story of Mary’ through the visual arts.

Above is a screen shot of the beautiful mosaic of images produced by artists from around the country.  With Advent upon us and Mary’s central role in the Christmas story, it is impossible to view this exhibit without contemplating the power of faith in our world.

by Kerri Jones

The icon, Our Lady of Tsarkoe Selo, modeled after an ancient Byzantine icon, inspired this work.  Traditionally created icons, being representations of sacred personages, are written following strict rules of color usage and postures depicting various religious significances. They are used as objects of veneration and aids to meditation in some Christian traditions.   My fabric mosaic is intended to be contemporary and iconic in nature (without conforming to a prescribed set of rules) and is intended to assist the viewer in spiritual contemplation of the salvific role of Mary.

Work in Progress – Theodora

Fabric Mosaic in Progress*

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.   I have not stopped sewing, but my attention has turned to fabric art; I’m involved in a complex project that is taking up my creative time and energy.  It’s been awhile since I’ve worked on a serious piece of fabric art and I’m excited about the breakthrough.

I don’t like to show incomplete work for two reasons, the first being that it has the potential of causing me to lose steam and I fear that I might not finish it and secondly, I don’t really like my work to be judged or appraised before it’s done.

The most interesting blog entries have a considerable visual component, with that in mind, I have decided to break my own rule and publish a small portion of the project.  I do, however,  feel compelled to say that it’s not yet finished…

Anyone care to identify this famous personage?  The clues are evident.

Congrats  to Pink Sister for correctly identifying this piece… she knows her art history!
