Travel and the movement between places is the foundation of Lisa Patroni’s minimal
practice. Her paintings draw on her formative experience of living and working in
Amsterdam for two decades.
Her work is informed by the subversive European tradition of Monochrome painting and
has a duality – both repressive and expressive in its gesture. - Patroni started exhibiting in
the early 1990s, and has consistently presented her work in Australia and overseas, with a
strong history of working in alternative spaces.
She graduated from the National Art School with a Master of Fine Art in painting (2018).
She was awarded a Canberra School of Art Travelling Scholarship (1985) and a Post
Graduate Scholarship with The Netherlands Government (1990), leading to further study at the Koninklijke Akademie door Kunst en Vormgeving, The Netherlands where she received her Post-Graduate Degree in Painting (1990).
Patroni’s work is held in public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Print Council of Australia, and private collections in Australia and Europe.
