Natasha Bieniek: Halcyon

‘Halcyon’ brings together a suite of miniature works by Natasha Bieniek, meticulous in their execution and insistent on close inspection. These paintings ‘shine, seemingly with an inner light, and with a vibrance that beautifully conveys the artist’s deep appreciation for the gardens and green spaces she depicts,’ writes curator Juliette Hanson.

The exhibition includes Biophilia, winner of the Wynne Prize in 2015 and a new series titled ‘Mirror Paintings’, depicting inner-city landscapes that provide a sense of respite and tranquillity amid such frenetic conditions.
