Fred Meyer/ Kroger put out a Pierce County call for an artist to design and complete a 5’6” X 46’ 4” mural for their new store in Gig Harbor. I applied and was chosen, along with 2 other artists, to design a representional mural about Gig Harbor.
My design was chosen!
'Cross Section' revolves around one core element - a slice of a tree. Building off themes of nature, water and Gig Harbor’s past and present, all surrounding images are connected and echo off the growth rings. Its outward movement is reminiscent of sound waves, water ripples, or waves traveling on a still bay. The deer, octopus and harbor seal gaze outward, inviting you to investigate within the design - to voyage from Gig Harbor’s forest to its underwater environment and back up to its beaches.
