Eurphoia

Abstract

The four ASL words from left to right in this painting are CHAMP (awesome), COOL, INSPIRE, and PAH (finally). A beautifully vibrant composition with visual lines indicate spatial image movements. ASL movement shows positive energy and is carefully integrated into the overall composition. The strong colors and energy of this artwork shows my happiness at being Deaf, and celebrating my Deaf identity.
