melted fruits series

These are my recent works that i am still working on. I call them 'Melted Fruits'
In the beginning, when I recalled the melted fruits first time, I was thinking the Grobal Warming.
It was a very hot day. I felt like my body was melting. It was April. It was too early to be hot. It was the moment I sensed Global Warming once again. Some people say global warming is like a fairy tale, but I know it is for real and a fact. I imagined that everything I like was melting. Suddenly, the picture of a melted watermelon came to mind. Watermelon is my favorite thing in summer. I cant even live hot days without it. Global Warming reminds me Image of melted watermelon, and a melted watermelon realizes me the seriousness of the Global Warming. Actually, at first, I made 3D work using sculpey, but I was unfamiliar with sculpey and the final work was not so good. After the summer, suddenly I dicided to paint them on canvas and it was much better than previous one. I still working on this series.   


  1. I like how isolated and iconic these disconcerting images are which indicates to us, the viewers, that there is a larger meaning behind them. I wonder if it would be interesting or useful to you to expand the iconography of melting forms, i.e. a melting bird on a branch, a melting reclining head on a sidewalk, etc.

  2. These are interesting! I am not sure if I would have connected Global Warming to these if you had not mentioned it in your statement... but my first emotion to them was sad, then I further thought of smoothies and using real fruit instead of the concentrates that are usually used. I connect more food issues than world and environment issues.

  3. I am intrigued with Anita's suggestion to try unexpected melting objects such as birds or a head or something like that. I think it would be a more powerful statement.
