Is anyone familiar with the art and iconography of Charalambos Epaminonda. (http://sacredartpilgrim.com/collection/view/20
I find his icon influenced Prodigal Son to be one of the more moving pieces of art I've encountered in long time, one of those pieces which Tarkovsky was doubtless talking about when he said: "The allotted function of art is not, as is often assumed, to put across ideas, to propagate thoughts, to serve as an example. The aim of art is to prepare a person for death, to plough and harrow his soul, rendering it capable of turning to good". Andrey Tarkovsky (director of the highly acclaimed film, Andre Rublev), Sculpting In Time, p. 43.http://sacredartpilgrim.com/cache/33c3962688862d26180fda71d850b086_w600.jpg
The expression on the faces, the embrace, the balance of movement and stillness, the palette, all to me very effective. Thoughts?
