Art for Advent 2019
art for advent 2019

Alevtina Val

I have prepared Murze's residence glued to spiritual preparation. One wore the other for 4 weeks. I started by analyzing the Nativity icon by reproducing it. And then I started to create a pictorial vision on canvas of this theology. It is a very long work of which I have proposed stages. Creative modules have appeared around Mary: the announcement to Mary of God himself, I invented a new icon and the abstract explosion on the world. Then, I thought about the announcement made to a woman, I created 3 works on these energies there; finally the angels are very present and I thought about a different figuration of angels of which I have submitted two drawings.These creations were submitted interspersed with photos of the progress of my large canvas, which will still have to end during the octave of Christmas!
This residency project was great. To center my creativity on liturgical time is like an obligation to be attentive to my way of serving God and to what art can testify for Him. I have work.
I thank the whole team for this project and their work. Merry Christmas.
