Owning your narrative.
Christine’s take - “Continuing the use of watermelon imagery - I used watermelons as a symbol of truly learning your history and owning your narrative. Watermelons with flowers pays homage to any black person plagued by any false narrative - with hopes of starting conversations to question ingrained stories in everyday society.”

These photos are an experimentation visual inspired by process art. Continuing the use of Watermelon imagery - I used watermelons as a symbol of truly learning your history and owning your narrative. First presented as 31 Watercolor paintings in a show at Portland Art Museum - these pictures of Watermelons were actually a piece I bit, photographed and kept during an artist in residency in May. Paired with flowers - the flower photographs were taken on walks around the neighborhood and a reminder to be present - it’s a form of self care. Watermelons with flowers pays homage to any black person plagued not just the Watermelon stereotype but any false narrative for that matter - with hopes of starting conversations to question ingrained stories in everyday society.
