Welcome Communication depicts a large stylized tree, branches gracefully curved as if in a breeze. Leaves of various fabrics are collaged behind and in the branches, the raw edges enhancing the tactile nature of the work. The branches bear multicolored circles, like fruit, each quilted with one of the manual sign language “letters.” The background is of brighter hues close to the foliage, and becomes darker further from the tree, in swirling designs. The background is quilted in various figures and sign language “words” like deaf, pride, life, work, art, world, free and community.
