Husband and Wife 1987

I chose this piece because I love the feeling behind it. It’s muted and dark, which gives it a gritty feeling, but the soft blue lighting in the background helps balance it out. To me, it feels kind of like a modern Monet style painting. I think it’s interesting because, every time you look at it, you can find something new. Like the baby doll and the firetruck (?) toy in the lower left; it indicates that they have children, but there’s not child in the painting. And the way the man is holding his wife looks almost like he’s moving her (to a wheelchair?) instead of a romantic gesture.
