Watermelon Coral
  • Watermelon Coral

    This painting was my submission to the 2018 westlake HS old boys exhibition. I began this painting with the idea to depict the violence of an exploding watermelon. As I refined and worked on the piece it grew progressivly unlike what I started with. The final premise of painting to me is more about how disturbing the unnatural can be, when characterists of two apposing natural forms are combined and intergrated. I find the painting has a unique humor to it like an exageration, a self parody or an ironic celebration.
