Mural artist Laurel True’s Ankara visit

Laurel True visited Ankara in May 2016

Mural artist Laurel True has just completed and unveiled her latest mosaic art project done with the assistance of 8 art students titled as Are You Looking? Are You Seeing? at Gazi University’s Fine Art Department’s entrance located in Golbasi Campus in Ankara Turkey. Here is Laurel True‘s take on this art project with her own words: “The design for Bakiyor Musun? Goruyor Musun? (Are You Looking (or) Are You Seeing) is based on conversations with project participants about the importance of seeing deeper on both a personal and a global level.

The mural explores shifting perspectives communicated through the dualities of dark and light and geometric and organic forms. The left side of the L-shaped mural reflects a nightscape with more pointed, linear forms while the right side includes a dayscape with flowing organic lines and softer, more colorful kaleidoscopic forms. The use of mirror in the mural further enhances the concept of self-reflection and perspective.”
