Art critic Sarah Kent visits the Shropshire studio of Aidan Hart, an Orthodox iconographer with more than 20 years experience painting icons. His commissioners have included the Prince of Wales and the Iviron Monastery in Greece, and with him Sarah explores the concepts behind modern iconography and the icon's place in today's culture.
