Inspiration, Fuel & Identity: A Conversation with Ted & Nune

Join RiverArts for a conversation with Ted Andreasian and Nune Karamyan, led by artist and expert art restorer, Katerina Spilio. Ted and Nune discuss their new book, Stone and Candle: Armenian Monasteries—the epic journey into the mountains of Armenia, unpack the deeper meanings of the book’s title, the inspiration for the trip, and the power of connecting to the past while shaping a creative path into the future. 

Stone and Candle: Armenian Monasteries is a collection of images that pays homage to Armenian nature and the magnificent churches ingeniously assembled over centuries by stone. Within the book’s pages, Ted and Nune’s work captures the profound play between human artistry and its surrounding natural environment. The images weave a narrative conveying the intrinsic connection between human creativity and the sacred architectural marvels of Christian heritage. 

About the Artists: 

Ted and Nune are a photographic team who seek inspiration and a spiritual dimension in the man-made world. They journey to discover monumental human constructions for studies of architecture and industry, bringing a joint male-female point of view to their shared vision. Their work is held in many private collections and has been exhibited in many countries around the world.

Since 1987, Katerina Spilio has worked for and later led Byzantine Icons Studio/Byzantium Arts Studio, where she has crafted icons ranging from a sixteen-foot Last Supper to delicate miniatures measuring five inches across. Her religious artworks find homes in churches and private collections across the United States. Beyond her religious works, Spilio’s secular work adorns private collections in the United States, England, and Greece. In addition to running her own business, she is also a scenic artist for film and television.
