A domestic scene of married couple seasoning and cleaning wings, 2016, Oil on canvas, 28x33in

Although I can’t relate to the art, the perspectives and message of this artwork interested me. The choice of using chicken to symbolize drug abuse stuck out to me because it shows how America views black people. Not only that, the photo shows some truth to how hard it is to live in these “urban neighborhoods” and struggle to get by. You can see in their faces how tired they are, probably from the lifestyle. However, there still is  a moment of kindness and love from this couple. The simple act of cooking shows this.
