Paradise and Purgatory

When I first went to this exhibit, I had troubles finding a piece that stood out to me. I am not sure if I just was not in the mood to look at art or if it was not my style. I finally came upon a piece by Fawnia Khan called Two Shadese of Gray. It contained two birds sitting in opposite directions. One appeared to be very smooth, almost perfect while the other one was not clean, and very ruffled. It is hard to say what Khan was getting at in this picture. I almost see as if it was displaying two different types of relationships. One being perfect with no bumps along the road, while the other seems to be very up and down with fights and struggles. This could just be my personal opinion on the art piece.
