Press release

Buchmann Galerie is delighted to announce a new exhibition by Lawrence Carroll (*1954 in Melbourne).

 

Time plays a significant role in current works by the artist, who lives in the USA and Italy. Large parts of these new works have been produced over long periods, and some even in different studios. These works are defined by concern for the moment, and conceived for the sake of the moment. Carroll allows himself to be led by time, waiting and quietness. Nothing happens with any suddenness.

 

Lawrence Carroll’s works are shaped considerably by an investigation into minimalist trends in art. His own remarkable response to the questions posed by Minimalism for subsequent generations of artists is what makes Carroll’s work so unique: As a reaction to the “deadpan”, the dead end of positivist minimal art, he turns to the specific and also emotional qualities of painterly media. Poor, and basic materials are exposed to long, intense processing and reflection in the studio until their “constructedness” has almost disintegrated. In Carrol’s work the proverbial hand of the artist vanishes in the long-processed material of his painting-objects and sculptures. “The painter lets go of something, which the painting then holds within,” according to Lawrence Carroll.

 

Lawrence Carroll’s exhibited widely; the exhibitions worthy of special mention are his participation in the Venice Biennale 2013, as part of the Vatican State pavilion, as well as Documenta IX. Most recently Carroll had solo shows in MAMbo - Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna in Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane, in Casal Solleric, Palma de Mallorca and in the Jumex Collection in Mexico City. Coming solo exhibitions include Museo Vela, Ligornetto, Switzerland and the Art Museum Kloster Unser Lieben Frauen in Magdeburg.

 

For further information about the artist and illustrative material, please feel free to contact the gallery at any time.

 
Pressemitteilung

Die Buchmann Galerie freut sich eine neue Einzelausstellung mit Werken von Lawrence Carroll (*1954 in Melbourne) in der Buchmann Box anzukündigen.

 

In den aktuellen Arbeiten des in den USA und Italien lebenden Künstlers spielt Zeit eine bedeutende Rolle. Große Teile der neuen Arbeiten sind über lange Zeiträume und teilweise in verschiedenen Ateliers entstanden. Die Arbeiten sind von der Sorge um den Augenblick bestimmt, und um des Augenblicks willen geboren. Carroll lässt sich von der Zeit, vom Warten und von der Ruhe führen. Nichts geschieht schlagartig.

 

Die Werke von Lawrence Carroll sind stark geprägt von einer Auseinandersetzung mit minimalistischen Strömungen in der Kunst. Seine bemerkenswerte eigene Antwort auf die Fragen, die der Minimalismus den nachfolgenden Künstlergenerationen stellte, macht Carrolls Werk so einzigartig: Als Reaktion auf den „Deadpan“, die Sackgasse des positivistischen Minimal, wendet er sich den spezifischen, auch emotionalen Qualitäten der malerischen Mittel zu. Arme, „povere“ Materialen werden im Atelier einem langen und intensiven Prozess der Bearbeitung und Reflexion ausgesetzt bis ihre „Gemachtheit“ sich nahezu aufgelöst hat. Die sprichwörtliche Hand des Künstlers verschwindet bei Carroll im lange bearbeiteten Material seiner Malereiobjekte und Skulpturen. „Der Maler lässt etwas los, und das Gemälde hält es dann in sich“, so Lawrence Carroll.

 

Lawrence Carrolls Ausstellungsbiographie ist umfangreich, erwähnt werden sollte seine Teilnahme an der Biennale in Venedig 2013 im Vatikanischen Pavillon sowie der Documenta IX. Zuletzt war von Lawrence Carroll eine umfangreiche Einzelausstellung im MAMbo - Museo d‘Arte Moderna di Bologna zu sehen. Davor waren seine Werke in der Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, im Casal Solleric, Palma de Mallorca und in der Jumex Collection in Mexico City ausgestellt. Kommende Einzelausstellungen werden im Museo Vela, Ligornetto, Schweiz und im Kunstmuseum Kloster Unser Lieben Frauen in Magdeburg sein.

 

Für weitere Informationen über den Künstler und für Bildmaterial können Sie sich gerne jederzeit mit der Galerie in Verbindung setzen.
