South Main Book Company Mural
20 x 12 feet
Acrylic on Drywall
For the second mural, we wanted to focus on concepts of concealed history, hidden truths, the unseen parts of people, understanding, validation, and love for the self and others. The green background is a map of Salisbury with some pieces missing. I put history under a magnifying glass.
I added the Rorschach inkblot to ask what we see in the ink and examine how we respond we see ourselves reflected in it.
