Imago Dei, Sacred Art.

SACRED ART

Translated from Latin, Imago Dei means “created in the image of God”. Our name sets a high precedent for our artists: that they will measure up to the greatest painters in classical art history. Pouring evocative images out into rooms and enlivening them with spirit, Our talented artists share a passion for bringing blank spaces to life. 

To define spaces. To energize environments. To speak in the language of the soul.

Sacred spaces are deserving of respect in terms of proper design and special ornamentation. Traditionally, sacred art is intended to uplift our hearts and minds to the spiritual. It is meant to awaken faith by making the unseen seen. Throughout the process of designing and creating sacred art, our talented, professional team of artists is dedicated to preserving this tradition of inspiring quality. A beautiful mural reflecting the spirit of the faith community invites worshipers into the sanctuary to open their minds and hearts to God.

An authentic and creative use of traditional styles is always assured. Classical, Gothic, Baroque, and 20th century styles are all employed in ways that accord with the true principles of sacred art.

Imago Dei takes great pride in the ability of our artwork to create a sense of permanence, knowing that one day it will become your legacy.

The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. -Wassily Kandinsy “We might even, the early theologians suggested, come better to understand God through beauty, for it was He who had created every beautiful thing in the world: the early eastern sky at dawn, the forests, the animals, and even more domestic items like a graceful armchair, a bowl of lemons and a ray of afternoon sun shining through a cotton window blind onto the kitchen table. In contact with attractive buildings, we could intimate some of the refinement, intelligence, kindness and harmony of their ultimate maker.” ~ Alain de Botton The Architecture of Happiness
