The extraordinarily intimate figure paintings of Natasha Bieniek are rapidly drawing this young Melbourne artist a national following. Bieniek creates seductive and distinctive miniature portraits that strongly recall the stark colouring and tonality of seventeenth century Dutch painting. The hypnotic effect of Bieniek’s somber moods is accentuated by her remarkable technical prowess – Bieniek has already been twice shortlisted for the Archibald Prize, and was recently the recipient of the $50,000 Metro Art Prize.
