What is a portrait? This compelling three DVDs explore portraiture from the philosophical, conceptual and artistic perspective through the art of the 2012 Archibald contestants.

Part 1: Street to Gallery
Stencil artist Luke Cornish began by drawing community art on the streets of Canberra. He got his big break when he was asked to create a stencil art for a square in Civic for National Harmony Day. In 2012 he moved to Melbourne, was taken up by the prestigious Metro Gallery and became a finalist in the Archibald Prize for Portraiture. He produced a fabulous work of Father Bob Maguire, which looks 3D. 9.44 mins.

Part 2: The Art of Juan Ford
About an other 2012 Archibald finalist who painted a portrait without a face. After leaving school, Juan Ford studied engineering. He soon realised however that, he possessed an amazing talent for photorealism, so began studying art. The precision from his engineering background, combined with his concerns for the environment and the human condition make for compelling works of art. 9.22 mins.

Part 3: Portraiture - Not Just a Face
In this film artists and art gallery curators discuss what makes a good portrait. No longer do you have to be rich and powerful to have your portrait painted. No longer does the portrait have to show a face, exemplified by the winner of the 2012 Archibald Prize, Tim Storrier who painted a portrait without a face. So what makes a good portrait? 14 mins.
