Local artist Anna Glynn's exhibition Promiscuous Provenance is back in the Shoalhaven and will be hung at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum.
The exhibition has been touring nationally since 2018, although was only shown in Adelaide for seven hours due to COVID.
Promiscuous Provenace features more than 30 watercolour and ink works, 3D printed sculptures, a sound work and installation pieces by Anna Glynn which explore our relationship with our colonial past by re-imagining the early settlers' depictions of the flora and fauna they encountered.
The exhibition started out at the Shoalhaven Regional Art Gallery after Anna Glynn showed some of her works to gallery manager Bronwyn Coulston.
Anna Glynn said creating Promiscuous Provenace was a big undertaking, taking over two years full time work, including a lot of hours researching.
"I went to London to look at the museums there and touched early watercolours from the First Fleet collection," she said.
"Part of what I was interested in creating was to imagine what it was like for the Europeans arriving on the shores here and the landscape and the animals.
"I haven't really touched on the Indigenous aspect because I don't think that I should be commenting on it and it's not my area of expertise.
"I suppose I was more interested in the naivety of the European vision in how they represented the flora and fauna."
One idea she has enjoyed playing was a silhouette of a dingo by UK painter George Stubbs.
"Joseph Banks collected it and it was sent to the US as a hide and Banks decided he'd like a painting of it and he commissioned George Stubbs one of the famous British artists.
"He did the equestrian paintings but he'd never painted a dingo.
"So he had it resown up and inflated and I imaged they may have used a bicycle pump and repainted a dingo.
"It's totally wrong but I've loved the silhouette."
The exhibition opens at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum on December 12 and runs until March 1.
