An exhibition of hand carved icons and ceramics by Dina Cormick
My main focus is always to honour the stories within every woman. Whether we

In the visual re-telling of these stories, I am fascinated by the blurred distinction
between imagination and symbolism, between dream-time and awake-time. The
artworks are presented as icon triptychs. The concept of the "icon" is to re-present
the story with the intimacy of encounter one experiences by opening a small icon to
meditate. The viewer can thus interact on a very personal level with each icon.
