Lisa Patroni is an Australian contemporary artist based in Sydney.
Lisa Patroni’s art is informed by the subversive European tradition of monochrome painting. It has a duality ? both repressive and expressive in its gesture. ?
The origins of her current work come from her experience of living and working in Europe for nearly two decades.
Lisa originally traveled to Amsterdam after being awarded a Canberra School of Art Travelling Scholarship in 1985. In 1990 she was awarded a Post Graduate Scholarship from The Netherlands Government. This led to a Post-Graduate Degree in Painting (through the Koninklijke Akademie voor Kunst en Vormgeving.)
After returning to Australia, Lisa completed a Master of Fine Art in Painting at the National Art School in Sydney in 2018. Her thinking and craft with monochrome art developed through her study and work at NAS.
Lisa has exhibited in Australia and Europe, with a strong history of working in alternative spaces.
In 2019, after graduating from NAS, she held a solo show ‘Mostly Mono‘ at Stacks Projects and contributed to a group show at Home Gallery. She curated and exhibited in a group show ‘Faux Pas‘ at Airspace Projects. And was awarded a residency at Waverley Artist Studios and exhibited at the Bondi Pavilion Gallery.
In 2020 Lisa presented work at Mona Foma in Tasmania.
Lisa’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.
