New Edition of Intruding Upon the Timeless
The updated edition of Gregory Wolfe’s collections of essays Intruding Upon the Timeless: Meditations on Art, Faith and Mystery includes new essays on contemporary authors and artists. Annie Dillard, author, and Edward Knippers, painter, are just a couple of the high profile contemporary artists whose work is expounded upon in this second edition.
Gregory Wolfe is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of IMAGE Journal, a publication which has been exploring the struggles and depths of the intersection of art and faith for nearly twenty-five years.
“When imagination and faith dance together, probing the mystery of the human condition, that is to intrude upon the timeless, a necessary form of trespass that enables us to come to know the other – and, in the process, ourselves. It’s a messy business but one that we cannot live without.”
From the Preface to the 2nd Edition.
Christian Printmakers Featured
First published in 2003, the previous edition was also illustrated, but in this second edition the editor chose to draw from a broader array of contemporary artists, including myself!
I am honored to be on the roster of artists included in this publication. Former professors of mine Bruce Herman and Tanja Butler and fellow Gordon-in-Orvieto alum Brenton Good, are among some of the eighteen artists whose images grace each essay. Printmaking techniques in black and white varying from etchings and linocuts to monotypes are all included.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon and by its publisher Square Halo Books; of course I recommend you purchase director from the publisher and support independent booksellers!
To view the series of monotypes from which were chosen the images in the book, visit my online store.
