This painting depicts the art gallery of NSW. The flowers used by Tiernan show both native and introduced species that now live alongside one another. Tiernan has employed superficial interior décor designs symbolically showing how the colonisers patterns of life threaten to eclipse the original land and inhabitants, an indication of their lack of connection to this ancient land.
