Icon Painting In Mexico

The idea of moving small particles of sand around with a brush to create a divine image is exhilarating, it is contemplative. Others find solace in yoga, meditation and prayer; I find it in icon painting. The practice requires considerable time and patience. The challenge lies in transmitting my peace, passion, fear, sadness or joy while abiding the artistic rules that govern traditional icon painting. This is an ancient language handed down from Byzantium times, 1,500 years ago.

Some say, “It is a surprise to be here, or I know nothing about this kind of painting  or this is amazing”. It is a wonderful time out, there is no place to get to, only a chance to gaze into icon images with silent satisfaction. Keeping the mind still and focused while we see and listen “is” prayer. It could be someones first encounter with an icon and could be their last but one thing I am certain of, the experience is unforgettable. I am a rebel icon painter, self taught and un-orthodox but not without tremendous love of icons and an honest desire to share what creating them has taught me.

Visit the website Museo de Arte Sacro de Querétaro. Ubicado en el Antiguo Hospital de los Hipólitos, en el centro histórico de la ciudad, el museo alberga una gran variedad de arte sacro que incluyen pinturas y esculturas que hacen un recorrido por la historia de la entidad, desde el punto de vista religioso. La historia del recinto comienza en 1586, cuando empezó a funcionar como un hospital de beneficencia, pero no fue sino hasta 1624 cuando la orden de los Hipólitos pidió al Rey, la administración del edificio. Para 1808, la capacidad del hospital quedó rebasada y su ubicación se convirtió en nociva, por lo que tuvo que cerrar. Con el transcurrir de los siglos, el edificio pasó por varias manos y remodelaciones, hasta que en septiembre de 2015 se convirtió en la sede oficial de este museo.
