MakersPlace Call To Artists: Roots
They sprout underground, building the foundation for plants above to thrive. They grow from our heads, giving life and length to hair, a symbol of self, strength and sensuality. They are passed down throughout generations, defining tendencies, traditions and traits. They represent reason and causality. They define inspiration, as well as conflict.
Endless interpretations exist for this month’s exhibition prompt of Roots. From the literal roots of a tree to your roots as an artist or a person, to the roots of a concept or idea, the direction you take this prompt is completely up to you. We hope that the artworks submitted are reflective of the multi-faceted nature of this prompt and portray each artist’s unique interpretation of “roots”.
