Nature Provides is an 8 x 18-ft mosaic and glass mural installed at the Western State Hospital’s Patient Services Center in Lakewood, WA. The mural with its spherical forms, flower and plant references bursts with whimsical energy; it uses visual means to capture the abundance of nature and its life-enhancing capacities. With its repetitive, circular, and spherical forms the mural refers to life on both the macro and micro level by suggesting a planetary and cosmic sphere as well as a biological, cellular, and atomic realm.
