Waxing Lyrical by Derryn Tal

Painter Derryn Tal explores new materials and methods in her new collection Waxing Lyrical.


March 16th, 2011

Derryn Tal’s exhibition Waxing Lyrical, on display at Sydney’s Depot Gallery from 5 to 9 April, brings together the artist’s newest works – sculpture, acrylic panels and wax and oil paintings.


This is Tal’s first exhibition since her recent group show in New York as part of Out from Down Under & Beyond at Chelsea’s Agora Gallery.

Waxing Lyrical marks a departure in Tal’s work as she experiments with new mediums and techniques.


Inspiring the title of the show is a set of miniature wax and oil paintings showcasing Tal’s abstract contemporary style.


Also showing for the first time is a series of acrylic panels, where Tal has used acrylic paint on photographic emulsion paper, creating some eye-catching, mesmering forms.



A range of sculptural works in steel and aluminium – ranging from tabletop pieces to 2.5 metre high structures – will be unveiled, as well as 6 mixed media paintings on canvas.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the latest from this diverse Sydney-based artist.
