In 2019 the art world mourned the loss of the devoted landscape maverick Patrick Carroll. The painter who called himself a “contemporary realist” was born in Bathurst NSW in 1949.
Carroll’s life as a full-time painter began after a successful exhibition in 1974 and went on to fill every corner of his life: spiritually and literally. Awarded numerous art prizes his following was international and his style was singular.
This comprehensive survey of works is long overdue. Rochfort Gallery together with the Carroll family have curated this survey exhibition, gathering for the first time the generous arc of his work and capturing the broad facets of devotion and skill.
The wearing of masks is strongly recommended. Hand sanitiser available.
