Istanbul Evangelia

art, recent work


Evangelia icon in Ayazma Church, Istanbul

NIPSON ANOMEMATA ME MONAN OPSIN; ‘wash your sins, not your face’… sound of water dripping from the Virgin’s well. A circle of light upon the coarse sand under the oil lamp. The caretaker singing low and gently in Greek. On the wall an icon representing the Annunciation, many times caressed by gazes, prayers, fingertips – deep into the very wood.
