Spring 2017: Inside the Diving Bell
Anne Emmons, Tim Timmerman, and Kiki McGrath
Inside the Diving Bell is a series of collaborative paintings by Anne Emmons, Tim Timmerman and Kiki McGrath. The title alludes to an image poet Christian Wiman used to describe the creative process, a metaphor for protection while descending to unknown depths to form a work of art. Our practice required a spiritual descent as well, with faith in each other as artists and fellow sojourners seeking God. For more, see here.
