Dragon Fruit Delicacy
This artwork was inspired by the most unpredictable fruit, the dragon fruit, with its odd pink & green dragon looking skin and white & black polka dot flesh. Hidden inside her dress is the dragon fruit dragon, it is spitting firey fruit from its mouth, and the black dots are like the seeds of this fruit. (FACT: Dragonfruit also comes in a fushia pink & black polka dot flesh variety) With a name like this and a skin like that you would think that the flavour would have some intensity, but it doesn't, it is so subtle, gentle, it is only the tiny black seeds that have a playful time popping in your mouth. As it comes from Asia I thought it appropriate to have an Asian style dress to feature this mysterious fruit and the delicate natural colours in the fan to sway in the breeze.
