'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. 
The Christmas Tree Bucket is a modern-day Christmas story with a dark edge. A wordless narrative, Parke's story is an ironic take on the 'typical' suburban Australian Christmas. From 2006-2008, Parke photographed his friends and family, casting them in a twisted tale that merges fact and fiction. The viewer is left to make imaginative sense of images of barbeques, screaming children, a burning gingerbread house and even the photographer himself vomiting into the infamous Christmas Tree Bucket.
Says Parke: "It was there - while staring into that bright red bucket, vomiting every hour on the hour for fifteen hours straight - that I started to think how strange families, suburbia, life, vomit and in particular, Christmas really was Merry Christmas!"
