Lawrence Carroll (b. 1954) is an Australian-born American artist whose work has been featured in major exhibitions around the world. Born in Melbourne, Carroll moved to California with his family in 1958. Some 25 years later, in 1984, he moved to New York to pursue his artistic development, with little concern for the fashions of the moment but a profound sense of personal commitment and dedication to the language and practice of painting. This book, published to accompany a career-spanning exhibition, provides an overview of Carroll's artistic development from his earliest works to the present day, highlighting the subtle recurring themes as well as the fresh departures that have taken him on wholly new artistic journeys.

Roberto Borghi is an Italian art critic and exhibition organizer. Lara Conte teaches the history of contemporary art at the University of Insubria, Como, Italy.||Gianna A. Mina is an art historian and director of Museo Vincenzo Vela, Switzerland, and president of the Association of Swiss Museums.
