Irina Bradley specialises in traditional icon painting which is a contemplative practice for the artist. She uses egg tempera and natural earth and mineral pigments, as well as 23 1/2 carat genuine gold leaf to create her icons on wooden gesso panels. Having recently completed her doctorate with the main focus on the image of Saint George and the Dragon, Irina started to explore philosophical ideas associated with early Christian thought and ascetic practice in her modern abstracts. A traditional way of painting icons, which is regarded as an ascetic practice is of great importance to the artist.
