Lisa Patroni is an Australian artist living and working in Sydney.
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
