Becau
se iconography is a discipline of reproducing the same image for the purpose of teaching it is paramount to grasp the idea that there is variation in repetition. The message stays the same because of a general format and consensus of elements. An example of what I mean, can be seen here in these five renditions of the classic Mary of Tenderness icon. Two important characteristics are key to the message: the face of Jesus touching the face of Mary in their loving embrace and Mary's two hands. With one hand she holds her son, her creation as he was born of her. In contrast, with her other hand, she is presenting her son to us, as the divine child.
Having said this, any of the icons in my collection can be found by title in a variety of forms and styles, depending on the country of origin, the iconographer and the era it was painted. sanmiguelicons.com/contemporary-icon-paintings/

What is an Iconostasis?
In most Orthodox Churches of Western Europe, you will find a wall across the altar area. It is an architectural feature covered by icons, created to separate the Sanctuary from the Nave. It represents the division between Heaven and Earth. The screen of icons creates a separation between sacred, holy space and the sanctuary, where the congregants gather. The Royal doors are placed in the center through which only the priest may go in and out. The complexity and size of different iconostasis vary greatly from one church and region to the other, ranging from a few images to very elaborate structures with many levels and a large number of images. Narrative icons are usually small in size; they are exhibited along one row mid center to commemorate the life of Christ.
The churches around the world support a hierarchy, ranking the clergy above the faithful. It is said God comes down to earth through the great iconostasis to converse and bless the worshipper. There …More

The Beauty of Eucharist.
Eucharist 18" x 24" hand hammered pewter and egg tempera
Artist Statement: Eucharistic worship is simplified here in the visual. It represents a distortion of time and space where the one who presides, the wholeness of the host and the Challis call the viewer to participate. Eucharist stimulates our mind to recall the beauty in both being servant and served. In the sacrament we balance our human desire for wholeness and our love and appreciation for the divine. The number 12 is a hint of the final revelation were we become the priesthood of all having begun with twelve disciples. From the Gospel of Thomas, “On what day will the rest of the dead come into being? And on what day will the new world come? “ I believe Eucharist can take us where we can potentially come into our true divine self in Christ.

Get in the Boat 18" x 24" Artist Statement: Jesus is assisting Peter to walk on water. The rest are there as witness, possibly thinking "who can do such things?"

About Mary Jane Miller.
In large part, Women Iconographers are keeping the tradition alive today. Iconography is an ancient technique dating back 1,600 years. Miller has 28 years experience in the art form as a painter, teacher and writer mixing contemporary thought and new theology to the images. Icons strive to reveal the beauty of humankind and our potential to see the divine in all things. Mary Jane Miller is a master iconographer, maybe a tad rebellious but faithful.

Christ Sees Us.
It is quite possible in my mind that spirit sees us. Perhaps it is our ancestors or even family members. Hindus believe in past lives, people see their grandmother at the foot of the bed when death approaches. Painting so many images of Jesus for 28 years has prompted me to imagine Christ Sees Us? if we look. Image has been central to all religions, its membership needs color shape and form to reflect on. Contemporary Christianity is seeking wider audience in an expanded sense of how we see spirit and it is more inclusive.
There exists many ways of expressing one’s belief. Looking at the face of Christ for long periods of time makes me think Christ Sees Us? if we look.. Being seen pushes the edges of traditional iconography. How many ways are there to say: the power of love is everywhere.
We use language to communicate, as well as physical touch. I have seen the Lords prayer said in sign language and it is absolutely moving and expressive without a sound. I have seen …More

New Byzantine Icon Painting Theology, a Women’s Unexpected Treasure.
Women’s voices and their images have been lacking in Christian theology and in Byzantine Icon Painting for more than 2,000 years. In the past, Christian art has typically focused on millericons.com whose holiness the everyday woman could not possibly attain. She also is praised for her obedience and silence Her heart is filled with love yet no reference to mind. But it is documented that inquisitive women like myself were around in Christ’s time, listening to His message and learning from Him. Where are the images of women and Theology? The histories of Women’s Unexpected Treasure reveals their wisdom?
Catholic Church teachings as we know them were once considered unchangeable but because of newly discovered texts and the contemporary phrasing of old theology. We cannot help but continually reexamine who we are in God. There is a movement underway for a more modern Catholic ideology about women’s issues inside the …More

We are being seen by Angelic Celestial creatures.
Some may call angels energy, intuition, grace, physic ability, or divine wisdom, but whatever the name, angles may be reminding us in powerful ways that we are never alone. Celestial creatures, may not be able to prevent our crashing into disastrous situations or manipulate the physical world so to avoid suffering but few will deny there are amazing circumstances that present themselves completely by surprise. Having an image of an angelic creature around your home may inspire thoughts of some sovereign purpose that is unfolding just for you, in the form of instruction, knowledge,or insight as mysterious spiritual beings.
Our lives are designed to allow conscious access to our “Angelic” self, to accept it and become it in essence. In this way we finally experience true spiritual contention with something greater than our self and one another.

Pentecost.
Christians celebrate Pentecost, the fiftieth day after Easter, which commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and brings the church into existence. It is the fulfillment of God’s promise to pour out his Holy Spirit on all flesh, empowering diverse people to exercise divine power.
The moment of Pentecost, filled the world with spirit, and opened the gates to begin a new era for humanity. Gazing at an icon generates insight into the Church’s understanding of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This contemporary icon of Pentecost was purchased by Rev Gail Greenwell for a chapel in the Christ Church Cathedral in Cincinnati.
Classic Icons of Pentecost have Mary the mother of Jesus placed at the very center of the icon with six disciples on either side. She is mentioned as having been present in the Biblical text. Whether Mary is included or not, most women imagine they were there with her and at the Baptism of Christ in the river Jordan as well as at the …More
