Oksana Prokopenko presents the final weekend of her exhibit of mosaic icons and paintings on display at the Narthex Gallery at Saint Peter’s Church in New York. The exhibit includes works of mosaic icons, painted icons, oil paintings and mixed media in the tradition of Byzantine masters, and is open to the public daily from 9:00AM-7:00PM through January 8th, 2012.


Archangels


Oksana Prokopenko’s subject matter and style are rare in today’s contemporary art scene. Her artistic process is similar to artists from hundreds of years ago because of her intense focus to precision, quality and detail. Prokopenko’s masterpiece The Archangels took her two years to complete and contains more than 40,000 tiny pieces of colored glass. Prokopenko is often described as a colorist because her colors inspire the viewer to spiritual and emotional heights similar to those felt by Prokopenko during her creative process, which can be compared and described as a spiritual practice.


St. Francis



Prokopenko’s works have garnered much recognition, especially from The Museum of Russian Art, The Glass Craftsman Magazine and the Russian NTV Network.
