About the artwork

Derryn Tal's art dog

Syd - my Guide Dog - has become close to my heart after the challenges I have faced painting him. This would pale in comparison to the challenges that a person who is blind would have to overcome, and I can only imagine the bond that they would form with their dedicated Guide Dog and man’s best friend. As the name suggests, Syd has been inspired by our beautiful Sydney - the water, the sun and the sky. My art practice embodies, and is motivated by the concept of change. My techniques are based on alchemy and art, and my interest lies in the discovery and the orchestration of reactions between unconventional mediums.
