One Night in the Tropic of Capricorn

  • Acrylic painting on paper. 420 x 594 mm. Unframed. 


    Part of the Sound of Space series, inspired by Japanese art, song lyrics and real and imagined celestial bodies.

    One Night in the Tropic of Capricorn is inspired by tropical places, the everchanging nature of some things and the certainty of others.

    The Tropic of Capricorn is a circle of latitude - an imaginary line around the earth - that lies parallel with the equator in the southern hemisphere.

    As we move closer to the solstice of 22nd December, in the northern hemisphere it is winter, in the southern hemisphere, summer. But at the Tropic of Capricorn, on the solstice, the sun is always directly overhead.
