in your time in prison, through your work at the facilities woodworkshop you came in contact with a criminal organization: they provided you with carpentry jobs, an apartment and a secure identity for your post-jail time. After making aute-couture furniture for gang bosses for a while you realized how heavy your own work was influenced by the iconography of the organization. You like it, it gives your pieces the necessary edge. You want to show in gallery again. On this dinner with the bosses you can talk about your new piece and ask for their support to show in one of the organizations galleries.

(if the carpentry doesnt suit your own practice and your proposal change that part of the story to make it more functional for you.)
