Neil Carroll’s practice sets out to explore the ability of pictorial space to meaningfully express and embody a perceived shift in how we conceptually construct the anthropological condition of the human figure and the contemporary space it occupies. It manifests these changes by re-negotiating with the painting format in a broader sense, breaking with the traditional bounds of representative, objective, architectural and urban space and forming a relationship with a more abstract, dynamic and transformable space.

‘Spatial constructions’ are created that use materials such as household paints, wood, plaster and metal, which often move beyond the stretcher frame, assuming different forms.

Carroll is an Irish artist based in Dublin. In 2017 he exhibited in the group exhibition Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Baltic Arts Centre and in 2016 he received his Masters in Fine Art, Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University, UK. Carroll is a recipient of the 2017 Arts Council Bursary Award. He has exhibited extensively in Ireland and the UK.

Residency Profile

IMMA 1000 Residency

01 May 2018 – 31 March 2019

Neil Carroll is a recipient the IMMA 1000 Residency Award.

Speaking about the award, Carroll commented; “The residency at IMMA will afford me the time and space to explore the potential of my practice through a sustained period of production in the studio. In addition, the studio and grounds at IMMA provide the perfect location for the processes within my practice to unfold; the more formal aspects of the existing architecture acting as a backdrop and juxtaposition to the more experimental spaces of my practice. I am absolutely delighted to be given this opportunity.”
