It can get lonely out here. Odd that this land gets the same amount of precipitation as the Sahara. This land is a desert. Deserted. But I am out here with just a few like me. It seems there are fewer by the day.
The strange shapes sometimes encroach on this vast landscape. No one knows from where they came. Are they here to take us away? Take us away to a better place? Or is it a farce? A smokescreen to keep us for entertainment.
It can get lonely out here. Better snuggle up, the night is coming and it's going to get cold.
Originally from Kings Mountain, North Carolina, Will Eskridge attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, School of Visual Arts/Savannah and earned his B.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts from San Francisco Art Institute in 1999. With a father as a veterinarian and an artist mother, his affinity for animals and art began when he was in pre-school. Eskridge explores many mediums including film and mixed media, but his true love is painting. Eskridge’s work has been exhibited nationally and collected internationally. Will has roamed the southeast, setting up shop in Charleston, SC, Kings Mountain, NC and Nashville, TN. He now works as a full-time artist and resides in Athens, GA with his wife and their many dogs and cats. Along with art, Will also plays drums, volunteers in animal rescue, and has an ongoing restoration of his beloved 1953 Buick.
