Peter Tyndall returns to Sydney - Art Collector

23 October 2012 | Painter Peter Tyndall is returning to Sydney after a 20-year absence for a survey exhibition with dealer Anna Schwartz. The exhibition, which spans the 1970s to the present day, is also only the second time he has exhibited in the past decade.

Schwartz has brought in former Queensland Art Gallery director Doug Hall to curate the exhibition. Hall and Tyndall have known each other since they were teenagers in the late 1960s.

“Peter developed a pictorial iconography which appears uninterested in international trends,” says Hall.

“It’s the mind’s eye that intrigues him. Whether it’s religious imagery or seemingly insignificant observations and actions, he creates unexpected and original re-readings, always deadly serious, often invoking a neo-Dadaist humour.”

The exhibition will run from 16 November to 22 December 2012 at Anna Schwartz Gallery in Sydney.
