Lawrence Carroll  (Australian, 1954) 

whitespace
Lawrence Carroll (Australian, b.1954) is a painter and sculptor best known for his table paintings made from everyday scrap materials. Born in Melbourne, Carroll grew up in California and studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. The surfaces of Carroll’s work appear monochromatic, but are complex networks of fractures and repairs. For his ongoing series of White Paintings, begun in 1984, Carroll attaches sculptural pieces of canvas, wood, and cloth onto a white canvas and paints the entire work in off-white. The resulting surface shows traces of the cracks and folds of the composite process, and patches of faint color. Carroll’s series of Table Paintings, begun in the early 2000s, are organic structures that place his White Paintings, supported by wooden beams, onto tables or rectangular pedestals. These works recall the work of still-life painters, such as Giorgio Morandi (Italian, 1890–1964), and the mixed media work of Robert Rauschenberg (American, 1925-2008). Carroll’s work has been exhibited at the Hotel des Arts in Toulon, France, the Museo Correr in Venice, and Documenta IX in Kassel, Germany, among other institutions. His work is held by several public collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. He lives and works in Malibu and Venice, CA.
