Day 20 of 28 Days in February Project
This painting is second of the first painting series that focuses on Police Brutality and Deaf in Prison.
This painting is about communication barrier in prison where there is no access for Deaf prisoners to reach out for an interpreter or to use a videophone. This concept is inspired by Deaf artist, Mary Thornley's Milan 1880. She used the big ASL in her painting with cracks. In this painting the letter 'A' is yellow with no cracks. This means there is hope. ASL sits in the dark corner of the jail cell. This means that Deaf prisoners could not reach out for help.
