In 2014, Sinclair embarked on a new series that would span a three year period. "Rococo" is a series of theatrical artworks inspired by the lives, fashions, gardens and motifs of 18th century high society. Following the design aesthetic of this period, the series is sensual, playful and flamboyant.
Sinclair relocated from Sydney to an acre of fertile land in Australia's Southern Highlands to grow extensive gardens for the project. In spring of 2014 and 2015 she harvested these gardens to arrange her models in a series of sumptuous flowerbeds onsite in her studio.
Sinclair's tradition of hand making the elaborate costumes and props within her work can be seen throughout the series, often echoing the exotic flowers and fabrics of the period.
