Deeply Rooted

Deeply Rooted Artwork

A common motif in American Sign Language literature and art is the tree. Perhaps it is because even a sturdy oak can withstand the ravages of time and nature to create a serene space under its leaves?

In this artwork a set of hands forms both the trunk (ASL – “tree”) and roots (ASL – “root”). The written ASL in the artwork gains a double meaning — “to deeply root” also means “to partake of heaven.”

8 by 11-inch and 11 by 17-inch prints of this artwork are available directly from Adrean, or order custom sizes from Society6 and Redbubble.
