The upcoming group exhibition “Feral Creatures” at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco is not a documentary portrayal of the animal kingdom. Rather, the technicolor paintings and surreal sculptures that make up the show speak to the ways animals are part of the contemporary imagination through fantasy and allegory. Curated by Stephanie Chefas (full disclosure: Stephanie occasionally writes for Hi-Fructose), the show will include the work of Michael Alm, JAW Cooper, Peter Gronquist, Michael Page, Caitlin Hackett, Anita Kunz, Christina Mrozik, Jason Wheatley, Zoe Williams and Kikyz1313. From Michael Page’s painting of psychedelic tigers to Kikyz1313’s morbid snapshot from a mythical tale, the works in the show range in style and aesthetic. Take a look at our preview of “Feral Creatures” and see the show January 18 through February 8.
