Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find the information insightful. ~ Dr. Jeanne Iris

Angels and Demons and Iconic Realism

The current film, Angels & Demons by Dan Brown, directed by Ron Howard, is an excellent illustration of iconic realism. Here, the author places a representative of the powerful Catholic Church, based on faith, in a scientific environment. The result of this juxtaposition is the audience's illumination of cultural belief systems.
