The piece satirically entitled 'Table Manners' reflects on parallel issues of gay and ethnic rights. In the painting, two racially diverse stylized women sit at a table, gazing directly at the viewer seemingly uninhibited and free. The substance of the painting is in the detail; here the focus is on their delicately clasped hands underneath the table suggesting their romantic liaison. The woman on the right holds a parchment with ‘Justice and Respect’ scrolled on it and the lettering can be seen on her dress, while on the ground, there is an apple with a bite taken symbolizing lust and knowledge.

Message from the Artist:
This year has been a test for everyone’s mental health. For me, the painting is a part of my healing process; I wanted to create something for DADA Daily which will bring hope and joy and celebrate life. This piece is a reminder to each and every one of us to continuously strive for a world that is more just, inclusive, and equitable ... but completed with more than a splash of decadence and style.
