For painting of George Zafiriou
OR Byzantine painting is functional art. It aims to enable psychosomatic humans as whole ,with all his existence, to participate in the resurrected body of Christ. The faithful follow and not follow in the life of the church and iconography ,like music and other functional art are intended to help the Christian to experience the experience of God's communion with the entire acquisition.
purity, the clarity with which the painting will show the divine economy facts are important because so the faithful can "read" the image and become a shareholder proposal of life that God makes the world. This clarity and purity it is that, in my opinion, featuring the work of exceptional colleague George Zafiriou.
faithful to traditional models, when painting Byzantine George Zafiriou, It follows the tradition of approaching it but creatively. You do not go into a sterile copy but the painting rests on tradition and breathes in today. The forms are clear and pure "gospel of illiterate" while the color balance in hot and cold proplasmos lammaton completes the shape of the form without tiring the eye.
The editing work is obvious and plain gilded image in which we distinguish strong influence from diakosmitismo of post-Byzantine painting. We see the same care and Nazarinou type work, which makes clear that George Zafiriou is an artist who is able to work equally well with both ways.
The paintings to follow the way of painting of icons, while the distinction that characterizes him as an artist allows him to "weigh" the premises of the church that there is a harmonious result.
May the Holy God who, with effort and hustle, ministering to the art of the Zafiriou him gives strength and courage and leads the paintbrush to the glory of His Church St..
