Project Description: While Adrian Gor's interest in icons (both commercial and religious) was shaped by academic studies in art history, theology, and phenomenology, his artistic vision stems from the experience of seeing people praying in Eastern Orthodox churches before the Byzantine icons he has painted. It is this latter direct experience with icons that drives Adrian's curiosity in the function of images to mediate the link between humans and divine dimensions. In Saints+Adrian, he does so by combining the Byzantine iconographic style and narratives with pop culture icons to rethink our spiritual interest in today’s commercialized visual culture.
