Best known around town for his contemporary paintings of wildlife that incorporate hard geometric shapes within surreal landscapes, Will L. Eskridge has extended his nature vs. technology theme a step further through his latest exhibition of all new works, “Creature Features.” Sourcing inspiration from the campy “creature feature” movie posters of the 1950s–‘70s, his paintings spotlight animal hybrids that, while often ludicrous and entertaining, have a sincere undertone of concern for environmental welfare. Eskridge, who holds a BFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute, typically works in oils but often branches out to gouache, acrylics and three-dimensional forms. “Creature Features” will remain on view through Sunday, Nov. 1.
