“Melons” will be the 3rd in the series "Fruits" and my submission for ArtPrize in 2018. The base coat/flag is finished and features the Trans Pride flag. The portrait will be of a transman that has had top surgery and is will be posed topless, in jeans and a masculine position. The model will also have a half of a cantaloupe, cut open (representing a vulva) and sitting in their lap, with their fingers in it; emulating a masturbatory act. The piece is part of my series "Fruits" which is a tongue in cheek look at gender, sexuality and language. All of the pieces in the series feature a background representing a flag from an LGBTQ+ community, a model that is part of the community and graphic imagery that is both humorous and uncomfortable in the conversation it evokes.
