Tropic Gothic

A feeling of a fullness, ripe fruit, overgrown greens and empty moments as we retreat from the sun.

Tropic Gothic was born in the quiet moments at dusk as I became acquainted with the thick air of an approaching monsoon season. Beginning along the banks of the Mekong Delta, the series soon found inspiration in the stories of Fillipino writer Nick Joaquin, who coined the term Tropical Gothic back in 1972.

I respectfully acknowledge the people of the Bundjalung nation, traditional custodians of the land on which I live and work, and pay my respect to Elders, both past and present, their culture and continued connection to land, water and community.
