The opening night of Anna Glynn's exhibition 'Promiscuous Provenance' last Friday at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre gave thecommunity an opportunity to meet the artist, enjoy a glass of wine and dive into lively conversation with fellow art-lovers.
The exhibition, 'Promiscuous Provenance', encourages a re-examination of our relationship with our colonial past where Anna Glynn creates a world of fantasia, caught between reality and imagination as she plunders historical archives for inspiration and draws on the historical practice of copying as a way of expanding the reach of a work and seeking scientific learning.
In creating strange natural history tableaux, featuring bizarre reimagined hybrid characters, she encourages the viewer to reflect on the experience of colonisation, and to reawaken a sense of wonder when interacting with our environment.
'Promiscuous Provenance' is a travelling exhibition from Shoalhaven regional Gallery Nowra. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
