Prudence Flint paints figures in psychologically charged environments. The viewer is invited into an intimate world where the figure’s pose, each articulated detail, and the flat expanses of colour create an interplay of tensions.
Flint is a Melbourne-based artist. She has held solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart and has exhibited in major state and regional galleries. She is a seventh-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 in numerous public and private collections. She had her first international show at Mother’s Tankstation Limited Dublin in May 2019.
