Level 2

Without specific narratives but full of psychological richness, Prudence Flint’s paintings of women escape easy interpretation. Populating sparse, dreamlike spaces, her often solitary figures perform everyday tasks, or are caught in moments of contemplation or rest. Flint draws and paints her models from life, then takes extended periods to sketch, refine and detail her paintings.

Hear Flint introduce her new body of work in NGV Triennial, Hunting & Fishing, which continues the artist’s interest in the traditions of figurative painting and the representation of women throughout art history in conversation with NGV Curator Katharina Prugger.

Prudence Flint is an artist based in Melbourne. She has held solo exhibitions in London, Dublin, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart and has exhibited in major state and regional galleries. She is a seven-time finalist in the Archibald Prize. She won the Len Fox Painting Award (2016), the Portia Geach Memorial Award (2010), and the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize (2004). Her work is held by collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, City of Port Phillip, Artbank, BHP Billiton, City of Gold Coast, University of Wollongong, Castlemaine Art Museum, X Museum, and numerous private collections.
