Description

"At the Sea" - Jeremie Riggleman

Referencing St. John of the Cross in A Slip of the Tongue, C. S. Lewis describes an individual’s response to God, considering Him as the Sea. In visual response, I made a fine art photo book, “At the Sea,” staging a goose playing out the narrative. The titles for the images in the series reference segments from multiple Lewis writings. In my presentation, I will talk about my history as an artist, leading up to the creation of this book, and connecting the work with other Christian artists. Additionally, I will give an overview of how contemporary art has situated itself in 2018, and consider ways in which Christian artists might respond to our present circumstances.
