Through problematic histories, moments of humor and new uses Florida Gothic makes use of the layered and muddy narrative of south Florida. A damsel, a creature, a strange presence work together to intrigue a viewer and mesmerize through out a disorienting world. The work looks to create a feeling of a narrative in the middle of a fun house, distorted, stretched and flattened.
Do we build upon, erase or disregard history? Can we appropriate images without connecting with them? Does a link bind us or present a platform to move past a history?
