"Rooting Tree" is an installation piece that forms part of the Uprooted - To Nourish Us All project, exhibited during The Spaceworks Tacoma Residency in 2022. The artwork portrays a diverse community of people who have been uprooted from their countries of origin and now call the US their home. The tree symbolizes the strength and resilience of these new Americans as they establish roots and thrive in their new community. Through this piece, I aim to celebrate the diversity that enriches our society and acknowledge the journey that uprooted individuals have endured to make a new home.
