Look At All The People

Mural By Cynvia Authur Rankin – Salisbury Circa 1900

It’s fascinating to see a mural with so many stories jumping out of it. So many parts with a full sense of the whole.

Look At All The People in this one, a depiction of Salisbury, North Carolina circa 1900, by Cynvia Authur Rankin. Look at how each part or section that your eyes pass by supports the other and how the subtle movement of a young girl’s dress draws you into the motion of the entire piece. Did you notice the depth of field, the road that takes you to the horizon? Did you notice how the grouping off to the left falls into another section of the mural or how the colors from the grass to the blue sky support the liveliness of a city from not too long ago?

As a people, we are parts that make up the whole of our world. With our subtle movements, collective gatherings and colorfulness from new born to senior, we too are part of a mural and in order to have a full sense of the whole, ALL parts must be considered.
