Why have a corner when you can have a whole facade to yourself. 🙌🏻

This beautiful statue of the patron the Oratorians was included in the facade while Senglea’s oratory was being built. The inscription underneath the statue of #StPhilip is a Latin invocation meaning “pray for us”.

With such a rich #history and culture, every town and village in Malta and Gozo has its own story to tell. Like most of the walled cities of Malta, the way to truly appreciate #Senglea is on foot. A visit to the Church of St.Philip is certainly a must. †
First built in the 15th century, but rebuilt in 1561, this church was damaged in WWII. It has subsequently been repaired and is a popular venue for weddings.

Catholic saints are human beings who lived extraordinary lives. If one had to choose a saint who showed the humorous side of holiness, it would be Philip Neri. On the other hand, he was a sign of contradiction, combining popularity with piety against the background of a corrupt Rome and an indifferent clergy, the main elements of post-Renaissance malaise. Neri was known to be spontaneous and unpredictable, charming and humorous. Many people wrongly feel that such an attractive and jocular personality cannot be combined with an intense spirituality. Neri’s life melted these rigid, narrow attitudes to piety. His approach to sanctity was truly Catholic, all-embracing and accompanied by a good laugh. He always wanted his followers to become not less, but more human through their striving for holiness.


We found this beautiful article about the history of this church should you like to have a read ( its worth it): https://www.timesofmalta.com/mobile/articles/view/20151025/life-features/st-philip-neri-and-the-oratorians-in-malta.589656 LINK IN BIO †

First layers of egg tempera paint for the Inanna icon; at this stage the paint is thinned with water and wine, the technique is loose and the brush is moved completely at random. This is the roskrisch layer - supposedly painted through the artist but not by them: it represents the chaos of creation upon which order, matter and enlightenment are wrought. Each colour will become richer and more solid as the many subsequent layers are added, eventually becoming deep jewel-like tones that each have their own further symbolic significance. .

Hey let's talk JESUS! Specifically, how he has been depicted throughout history. It's easy to forget that the current imagery that we associate with Christianity (or any religion) hasn't always been the same. Today, when we think of Jesus Christ, we generally picture a bearded adult man wearing a robe and a halo. However, when Christianity was on the rise during the beginning of the forth century in ancient Rome, Jesus was depicted as a very young shepherd. At this time, Christians were a minority in the Roman Empire and took comfort in the image of Christ as the protective shepherd of the flock. The first statue is reflective of the ancient Greek style, specifically the Calf Bearer statue (featured in my very first post about the Archaic Smile!). The third picture is from the oldest known depiction of the crucifixion scene, and Jesus is again shown as a beardless youth. He is also depicted as muscular and nearly nude, much like the Roman pagan gods. It wasn't until the sixth century in the Byzantine Empire that the image of Christ as we know it become established. Unfortunately, the rise of iconoclasm in the eighth century not only halted the production of Christian art, but also led to the destruction of many existing art pieces. Interestingly, the rise of iconoclasm amongst Christians was in part inspired by its practice in the Muslim religion. As the Islamic states succeeded in many of their battles against Byzantium, many believed it was partly thanks to Islam’s lack of iconography.

A few years ago I attended a week long icon workshop taught by Teresa Harrison. It was a wonderful experience and I hope to get the opportunity to do it again some day. My interest in the history and language of icons often leads me to rescue cast off, vintage religious art. My rules are only that the piece has to move me, be reasonably priced, and be smallish for my smallish lifestyle. This wooden plaque is made in Spain. I paid $17 for it. I like the modernist design and the metallic paint. You can't tell from the picture but it's three dimensional. It came in the mail yesterday and coincidentally in today's Gospel, John 6:41-51, Jesus says -I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever. #religiousicon #religiousart #catholicism #coolstorybro

As well as working as a contemporary artist, I have a personal interest in Byzantine and ancient spiritual art, and I explore the techniques of fresco painting, iconography and encaustic. This is part of a work called BLUE ANGEL.

"Strength through vulnerability."
I don't understand these words yet, but all through the beginning of 2018 has been patchy, and I have shown vulnerability towards almost every person in my life, the way that people have reacted has taught me about others and myself. I am grateful to all the support and kindness that has been given me by my encounters and friendships. Recognizing toxicity is always something I recognize too late, and coming back from that is a journey. I have found strengthened friendships through this year. When all the dust settled, I was very overwhelmed and grateful to everyone who stood by me and had my back. Trials show who is ready to care for others and who is not ready to self reflect to grow. Growing can hurt. Self reflection can be painful. I want to move on without hurting others but still protecting myself. I am not a stand-alone individual, I am a collection of everyone who has ever seen me.

“Back to my roots” - Post # 7 - Grotto of the Nativity. This is one of the two most holy locations in the Christian religion. The first picture is of the Altar of the Nativity. The exact spot where Jesus was born is marked by a 14 point silver star. This star has the Latin inscription “Hic De Virgine Maria Jesus Christi’s Natus EST 1717”. Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary 1717. This star was installed by the Catholics in 1717, removed allegedly by the Greeks in 1847 and reinstalled by the Turks in 1853. The star is surrounded by 15 silver lamps representing the three Christian communities: six to the Greek Orthodox, four to the Catholics and five to the Armenian Apostolic. Overlooking the altar is the inscription “Gloria in excelsis Deo et in terra pax hominibus” Glory to God in the Highest. Above this are representations of the Virgin and Child in swaddling clothes, the scene of the washing and that of the coming is the shepherds. The second picture is the entrance into the cave. It is a small entrance that you have climb down stairs and duck to get into the doorway. Upon descending into the cave, you enter the grotto. The third picture is Chapel of the Manger. The fourth picture is the Grotto of the Nativity. The first time I visited here I was 6. While I do not have a memory of this visit, there is a picture of me standing in this same spot, holding a candle. #bethlehem #holyland #palestine #palestine🇵🇸 #churchofnativity #grottoofthenativity #christian #christianity #jesuschrist #jesus #christ #christbirth #jesusbirth #christianchurch #christianhistory #christianart #religiousart #altar #religion #religiousplace #religioushistory #icons #religiousicon #worship #sacred #explorehistory #exploretheworldwithme #exploretheglobe #speechlessplaces #travelbloggers

I am not a Catholic, nor a Christian. But more than 3 decades ago, while in a small handicrafts shop in South India, I fell in love with this locally carved and painted primitive Virgin Mary. Her calm and thoughtful mien, almost a little sleepy. The wondrous golden aura surrounding her head; her open radish-like heart; the open, unguarded position of her hands. Certainly I bought several more typical carved Hindu religious images:Krishna, Sarasvati, an elaborate scene from the Gita. Those too hang on my wall. But none of them charm me as much as this Mary does. She hung in my studio for maybe 10 years... in my Vermont kitchen for another 15. I wonder where she will hang in my next home... #art #religiousicon #virginmary #indianart #carvingwood #meltingheart

In understanding the simple, visual interpretation of Christianity portrayed in powerful yet “silent” icon painting one only needs to read Peter Pearson, when he writes, “The West, for many centuries, has been dominated by a highly rationalistic mindset that presumes to express and explain the nature of God through words. The East has only recently begun to express its understanding of God in those ways. For the most part, Eastern Christianity has always recognized that it can only say so much about God in finite, human ways before it must go silent before the mystery of the Infinite and Unspeakable. Instead of defining ultimate reality in theological concepts, the East has relied upon its artists, musicians, and poets to proclaim what can only be understood in the heart.” (Peter Pearson, A Brush with God: An Icon Workbook)

A religious triptych I made out of an old acetaminophen pill box. I'm not religious at all, or even Christian, but religious iconography is some of my favorite art genres. .
