Jeremie Riggleman's whimsical work explores the tension between longing (discontent) and belonging (contentment), and what could be better for this season? In his "Zoo of Lusts," Rigglemanplaced baby Jesus in his cradle at the center of the scene watched over by an angel in the form of a toy bear, and surrounded by other toy animals including a duck and a dinosaur. Riggleman uses lawn art creatures as stand-ins for exploring his past and thinking about the future. In his artist statement, the artist cites his influences as "mythology, folk art, pop culture and faith." "It is just one of the images in "The Beautiful,” a CIVA exhibition opening on January 25, 2018, at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI. Rigglemanis a member of CIVA/Christians in Visual Arts, and the show features works by other CIVA members.
