Iconic Compositions in Dislocated Context: Art of Andrey Remnev (15 images)

The painting style of Moscow based artist Andrey Remnev lies somewhere between antiquity and contemporary. One look at his work, and it should come as no surprise that he studied painting at the Holy Andronic monastery in Moscow for eight years. The site is home to some of the most precious examples of Russian Orthodox art, from which Remnev borrows his techniques and palette of natural pigments. Remnev’s work frequently displays familiar images of iconic art in this unusual context, giving new meaning to old styles.
