It’s that time of year again in the Australian art scene. The annual Archibald Prize is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious art prizes. It’s awarded to the best portrait painting, preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics. Here’s a selection of some my favourite finalists from the 2012 shortlist. You can view more at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Michael Peck, Self portrait in the image of my son

Vincent Fantauzzo, Kimbra (the build up)

Robin Eley, Bibliography

Natasha Bieniek, Fluoroscuro

Angus McDonald, Tim Maguire
