Tropical Tropes brings together works by six artists who are represented in the Gallery’s Permanent Collection.


Together their works explore narratives around the theme of life in the tropics, and specifically address how the complex environment of the tropics can shape lives and inform perceptions of identity and belonging. 


Artists – Segar Passi, Heather Koowootha, James Morrison, Roland Nancarrow and Linda Jackson.


Tropical Tropes continues the Gallery’s research interest in exploring our particular place in the world’s tropic zone and how artists who live and work in this region respond to and articulate social, environmental and political conditions specific to the tropics.
