There was an oralism club for the Deaf in New York City during 1960’s. The club was named “Go Merry Round”.
This painting is about no sign language access and sign language disappearance.
The white horses on the go merry round platform represent it is unclear what people are saying as the mouth moves up and down, and goes sideways and also are like the ancient ghosts.
Behind the white go merry round horses, there is black hole that deaf people have loss of language and disappearing feeling that goes deeper in the isolation.
