Patrick Carroll’s new exhibition draws on a challenging subject and location, the outback of Central Australia. When Carroll spent time in the Northern Territory last year he used colour as a tool to interpret the landscape and to simplify and objectify its motifs. This process became an exercise in abstracting the image through its “redness”. The result is a body of work that simultaneously explores the magnificence of the Australian landscape and the qualities of paint.
