Artist Profile

Tommy was born in 1956 at Doon Doon Station in the East Kimberley and worked as a stockman for many years. His knowledge of the country in which he worked is extensive and the pivotal focus of his paintings.

He is a natural – his style is strong, individual, balanced, striking. It is obvious that he has never followed in anyone’s footsteps – his works are most definitely by Tommy Carroll. The paintings flow with the landscape – from minimal yet precise black and white to vibrant reds and bright yellow to the softer black/brown/green of his grandfather, Paddy Carroll’s country.

He has participated in Solo and Group Exhibitions throughout Australia – his paintings have been acquired by important collectors, the National Gallery of Australia and the Parliament House Collection. Tommy’s works are popular world-wide, as many collectors from America, Germany and Holland have discovered and collected and continue to commission works by this now well established artist.

A man of few words, a focused, professional artist – minimal by style, not by market preference.

Artwork Description

Doon Doon Station is one of the roughest in the East Kimberly – a high mountain range runs right through the middle of it. There are the biggest caves (Nowanns) in lots of the hills – I have painted them looking all red/orange before the wet, hot and dry – when you look in you can’t see the end of it. I’ve walked in a long way in lots of these caves, and still have never seen the end of most of them. The rock wallabies live in these mountains – you can see them in the day time, but night time they go into the caves – guess it’s safe for them. The Goolarbool (Rainbow Serpent) is said to have made these caves and the big rocks and the river beds – long time ago in the Ngarrankarny (Dreamtime).
