Lawrence Carroll, Installation, documenta IX, Kassel, Germany, 1992

‘The Australian-born, American-raised painter Lawrence Carroll—known for his expressively elegant, restrained sculptural pictures often assembled from found materials—has died. His death on Tuesday morning was announced by his Cologne gallery Karsten Greve, which has represented the artist since 1999. He was sixty-five years old.

Carroll quietly resisted trends or even a decipherable progression over the span of his forty-year career, though his muted color palette and use of household paint, stitched canvas, oil, wax, and dust to create works which existed in the space between object and art object remained throughout.’ Excerpt Artforum News
