Artist Roger Hall’s Scientific Illustrations come to Lindsay Wildlife!
New Art Exhibit Includes Special Selection of images dedicated to National Parks of California
WALNUT CREEK—Gaze at Roger Hall’s scientific collage illustration of “Bay Area Backyard Birds” and be amazed by the curved beak of a California Thrasher or the bright yellow on a Townsend’s Warbler. Like a field guide, this collage is one of nearly 30 graphic illustrations on exhibit at Lindsay Wildlife Experience starting Saturday, Oct. 24 and running until Jan. 3.
The show Earth: Celebration of Wildlife by Roger Hall features all types of animals from an American bullfrog to a Bornean Orangutan. Hall starts with standard ink on paper drawings in black and white then scans them into a computer where he lays color on the drawings using a graphic tablet “to give the images a unique look,” Hall said.
The exhibit also includes five collages, like the Bay Area birds, Endangered Primates of the World and Animals of Madagascar all which tell a story. Hall was inspired to do collages because he was grasping for new inspiration and found that doing collages allows him to do research and he learns about animals he never even knew existed.
“I think about what animals I would encounter in the forest,” he said.
The exhibit also includes a special selection of images dedicated to National Parks of California the animals “reflect typical ubiquitous animals from those parks,” according to Hall.
A special artist reception for Hall will be held 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 15 at Lindsay. The artist will be there to answer questions and discuss the creative process. Refreshments will be served.
