We are excited to present an exhibition of paintings by artist Angelica Sotiriou Rausch, recently featured at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress in their Sacred Space and Exhibit Hall. Inspired by the prayerful, contemplative Byzantine process of iconography, her paintings utilize a multilayered application of paint working from the darkest values and to the lightest values. From Angelica ~ My recent paintings have been a personal journey of uncovering and revealing pathways, windows and portals of light and of spirit. When I face my canvas, I seem to be standing on a precipice. I am a witness to voyeuristic conversations exchanged between my mind, my heart and my artist hand. Each new work has illuminated another section of a path that takes me further into un-charted visceral silence. Creating these works has become a wordless cry to find my way back home again. I am grateful.
