The exhibition will present works by Tyndall from the mid-1970s to the present. It is the first time the full extent of the artist’s career has been exhibited. Tyndall’s formative years were to mark him as an original conceptualist-painter. He quickly attracted the attention of curators and public collections, and his exhibition profile in Australia and internationally is extensive.

Tyndall has been connected with Anna Schwartz Gallery for almost two decades. ‘Peter is one of Australia’s most important painters from the last quarter of the 20th century to the present. It is timely to recognise this and to ensure his reputation and work can be introduced to the next generation of curators and art historians,’ says Anna Schwartz.

Exhibition Curator, Doug Hall, and Tyndall have known each other since they were teens in the late 1960s. Hall says of the artist’s work: ‘Peter developed a pictorial iconography which appears uninterested in international trends. Oddly, that’s one reason why he attracts so much interest. His interests are as vast as they are deeply thought about.’
