The Michael Reid Gallery will be presenting Joseph McGlennon “Strange Voyage” at Depot Gallery

Drawing on the legacy of the animal paintings of George Stubbs and the botanical illustrator Sarah Stone, “Strange Voyage” is a continuation of Joseph fascination with the return to England in 1771 of Captain Cook.

His ship caring carrying a vast number of Australian specimens of plants and animals previously unknown to Europeans, the strangest of which was a kangaroo, shot at Endeavour River for voyage naturalist Joseph Banks.

His work seeks to locate the proud but (to European eyes) exotic animal within an unfamiliar (to Australian eyes) and equally exotic European landscape.
