TLC 247/5 online Douglas LeBlanc August 16, 2013 News The Sept. 1 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. This edition features a review of painter Ludmila Pawlowska’s Icons in Transformation exhibit. Reviewer Gayland K. Stone, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Concordia University Wisconsin, writes: Some viewers may be troubled by the abstract style of the work, but spiritual realities are not so easily translated into representational imagery. Pawlowska has adapted styles and techniques related to those of the Abstract Expressionists, while including representational elements. The expressionist character of the work helps to bear the emotional state of both artist and viewer. The textures of the panels and the richness of the surfaces invite us to come closer, as we might approach an icon in an act of personal devotion. The exhibit makes its next stop Sept. 10-Nov. 9 at St. Paul’s Church, Chattanooga, Tennessee.
