Description about the painting:
This painting is about Mask of Benevolence by Harlan Lane's Mask of Benevolence book. This painting shows a class picture of a mainstreamed Deaf student with hearing students. These hearing students pretend to be 'friends' with the Deaf student, however the Deaf student knows and sees not-so-good vibes among them. The Deaf student signs 'STOP,' 'Enough is Enough'. The blue tape is the symbol which I use in many of the paintings, is a negative remark to audism, oppression, crossed-out, tied down, trapped and masks.
