Morris x Icons

William Morris, who always stuck with me as an inspiration, was the pioneer of the Arts & Crafts movement back in the late 1800’s. His work was a symptom of a much larger Christian reformation, which imbued his designs.

Morris’ art is composed of heavily decorative floral patterns that I’ve combined with painted Eastern Orthodox icons (mainly) from Byzantine and Russian culture. They are displayed within Orthodox churches across the world, often used as an iconostasis and “as points of visual and spiritual intersection with eternal things”.

The duality of secular vs non-secular artforms spoke to me on many personal levels and revealed an attractive Judeo/Christian memetic continuity.

These montages were composed during my education about each saint or Biblical figure and are displays of my own vacillations with metaphysics and ontological discernment.

“Beauty shall save the world.”

The Idiot
by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

"Everything made by man's hands has a form, which must be either beautiful or ugly; beautiful if it is in accord with Nature, and helps her; it cannot be indifferent.”

William Morris
