Looking at this piece by ~melissacampa makes one wonder how all the different elements would offer initial captivation and how that in itself would vary amongst individuals in the audience. Whether it is the delightful choreography of stars arcing to end in mind and heart, or the ingenious mirror imaging, or simply a beautiful face, Mural project 2007 certainly has the power to beguile and intrigue. Please enjoy. (

This powerful mural makes me think of a mural by Klimt, also entitled medicene and also fiercely macabre as your piece is, that was similarly placed in a univerasity (or library of science, cannot recall) and it created a sensation and drew criticism because in its macabre depiction, made medicene seem like a failure, not a triumph.
I personally love it, but would not have commissioned it for a medical wing, if only because it draws on the macabre, and not the positivity, with which to inspire students (with the dead baby in the forefront).
Hermoso y conmovedor trabajo. Realmente me causó gran conmoción, y al observarlo atentamente todas las posibles interpretaciones de esta pieza que se me ocurrieron me causaron un escalofrío. Felicidades, increíble trabajo y asombrosa galería.
