The Icon: the Life-giving Water of the Romanian Orthodoxy presents a collection of Christian Orthodox icons by Romanian artist Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru.

The exhibition aims to promote the Romanian spiritual tradition of Byzantine iconography. Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru’s icons, tempera-painted on wood with applied gold leaf, reflect the perfect symbiosis between the mundane and the sacred world of angels. The icons are an invitation to thought and contemplation.

Part of the icons on display belong to the collections of St Gheorge’s Church in London and Stefan cel Mare si Sfanti Church in Poole, Dorset. New works will go to the same collections at the end of the exhibition, from 20 November.

The artist Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru and the Priest Ioan Sarpe from the Church of “Pogorirea Sfintului Duh”, London will present a talk on Orthodox iconography before the private view .

Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru graduated from the University of Psychology and Social Assistance Iasi with a degree in aesthetics. Together with the Foster Care Centre Bucium in Iasi she founded a Iconography Centre for children with creative skills. Their works were awarded the first place in the international exhibition Life Always Prevail in Tel Aviv. Currently her icons are exhibited in monasteries and churches in Romania and England.

The exhibition is organised by the ‘Romanca’ Society with support from the Romanian Embassy, the Romanian Cultural Institute in London, Sf Gheorghe Church, London and Stefan cel Mare si Sfint Church, Poole.

Expozitia Icoana , apa vie a ortodoxiei romanesti prezinta o colectie de icoane realizate de Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru – artist din generatia contemporana de iconografi ortodocsi din Romania.
Expozitia urmareste sa promoveze spiritualitatea traditionala romaneasca, sub forma artei iconografice de traditie bizantina. Pictate in tempera pe lemn, cu aplicatii de foita de aur, lucrarile Aureliei Chiriac Carabinieru reflecta o simbioza perfecta intre lumea terestra si lumea revelata a ingerilor, invitand la meditatie si detasare.

Unele dintre icoane fac parte din colectiile Bisericii Sf Gheorge din Londra si a Bisericii Stefan cel Mare si Sfant din Pool, iar altele pictate recent vor completa aceste colectii dupa inchiderea expozitiei.

Vernisajul va fi precedat de o prezentare despre iconografia ortodoxa, sustinuta de artista Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru si Preotul Ioan Sarpe, Paroh al Parohiei Pogorirea Sfintului Duh din Londra.

Aurelia Chiriac Carabinieru a absolvit Universitatea de Psihologie si Asistenta Sociala din Iasi cu o teza de estetica. Impreuna cu Centrul de plasament Bucium din Iasi a infiintat Centrul de iconografie pentru copii cu abilitati creative. Lucrarile acestora au primit premiul I la expozitia internationala Life Always Prevail din Tel Aviv. In prezent, icoanele artistei sunt expuse in manastiri si biserici din Romania si Anglia.

Expozitia este organizata de Societatea Romanca cu sprijinul Ambasadei Romaniei, Institutului Cultural Roman, al Bisericii Sf Gheorghe din Londra si al Bisericii Stefan cel Mare si Sfint din Pool.
