Will Eskridge - Good Morning Bear

Statement

What does it mean to be a sentient being? Who determines which species is more important? There are secrets to animals that we, as humans, can not comprehend. These mysteries are not unlike those of the universe. The more that is explored, the more secrets are revealed to be decrypted. Layers cover layers that cover more layers. Science and technology can crack parts of the code and unveil some of the nuances of the unfathomable, but it is only the universe as a whole that understands. We can speculate with scientific knowledge, but no one knows exactly what the animal is experiencing, except for the animal. One thing is for certain, we are all vital to the planet. Even those deemed ugly or scary.
These paintings are a celebration of these outcasts and their mysteries. Thick paint is layered to create visual and actual texture like the layers of mysteries behind the animal kingdom. Vibrant colors echo the vigor of nature and its persistence to survive. Finally, contoured lines overlap each other outlining a faint depiction of an animal mimicking human’s explorations of understanding the world.
