A white cat reappears throughout Charles Blackman’s work — a symbol of innocence, childhood, a familiar and clandestine echo of the artist himself. In ‘Butterflies Path’ she sits beside a burst of light.

Like Claude Monet, Blackman was interested in capturing the same landscape at different times of day. Unlike Monet however, he was not interested in remaining faithful to these moments. Indeed, there is an intoxicating unreality to Blackman’s garden — a heady magic that recalls the fantastical gardens of Alice in Wonderland, The Secret Garden and Narnia.

Blackman spent much of his childhood in the garden and it has been said, spent his career painting back to it. ‘Butterflies Path’ is a site of wonder, forbidden yet intriguing. For collectors of Blackman, escape in this glittering realm.
