Anthony O'Carroll (guest artist)


The practice of Sydney artist Anthony O’Carroll centers on materiality, texture and surface in its evocation of the urban landscape. For the artist, abstraction is the pursuit of evoking a subject rather than rendering it, his works conjuring walls, sidewalks and surfaces by self-reflexively asserting the pure physicality of their medium. This aesthetic of ‘painting for painting’s sake’ materialises like a revenant shadow from the history of modern painting, furnishing a refreshing alternative to the web of politics that weaves contemporary art.
