Marlene McCarty – What Lies Between the Lines


One panel of a 4-part mural series, this depicts Shanda Sharer and Melinda Loveless, Toni Lawrence, Hope Rippey and Laurie Tackett. Sharer was 12, and killed by the four other girls, an act of jealousy and revenge instigated by Melinda Loveless because of the attention her lover, another teen girl, paid to Shanda. The events are frightening, chilling and it’s as if the drawings in that way unfinished and the hidden details revealed get at both trying to reveal what’s beneath and the horror and way these things are concealed in our culture.
