PATRICK CARROLL, Contemporary Realist Artist


Born 1949, Bathurst

Patrick painted from an early age but decided to take on full-time painting as a career in 1974. 


Apart from staging over 40 solo exhibitions and numerous group shows Patrick has also received in excess of 100 awards and commendations for his paintings, many of which have been short listed for some of the most prestigious Art Awards in Australia.


These include:


  • Wynne Prize, Art Gallery of New South Wales

  • The Blake Prize for religious art

  • The ACTA Maritime Award, winning this prize in 1987

  • The Sydney Morning Herald Art Prize, declared the winner in 1990


Selected highlights of Patrick’s artistic career:


  • 1973  - commenced career as a professional artist

  • 1978   - Illustrated   ’Around the Boree Log’  a selection of verse by John O’Brien

  • 1995  -  held a solo exhibition ‘ Gravitas’a Survey Exhibition of paintings at the Manly Art  Gallery and Museum
