Patrick Carroll – Artist’s statement
I describe myself as a contemporary realist.
I work mainly in oil and acrylic on canvas and paper.
The search for new and challenging subject matter has permitted me to travel extensively throughout Australia and overseas.
Painting is a process that I find both painful and rewarding. Each new work presents me with a “minefield” of problems to solve as I try (in vain) to force my vision onto a painting that appears to have a life of its own.
The best a painter can hope to achieve is to show the ordinary in an extraordinary manner.
If successful he has survived mood swings ranging from exhilaration to despair as he makes the inevitable compromise in order to begin afresh in the ongoing search for the “elusive masterpiece”.
