As the title suggests, the new mural unveiled at SMoCA, Environ was designed to reflect multiple features that directly surround the space. Each aspect of the courtyard where it resides is taken into consideration—from the colored light of James Carpenter’s glass scrim wall to the ever-changing view of James Turrell’s skyspace, Knight Rise, as well as the nearby native plant life. Pulling simple abstract shapes and colors from each of these influences created one cohesive and fluid design. The intention of the artist is to complement the space and welcome visitors to spend time within the courtyard walls.
