In this exhibition of paintings, Auguste Blackman confronts his feelings about his own marriage. Married now for twenty years to wife Andrea and with six children and many grandchildren of his own.  As his last child leaves home, Auguste and Andrea are faced with each other in their empty nest. On reflection of his years of marriage, Auguste talks candidly of his concerns with the harmony and discord in the nature of their relationship. His intention for this exhibition is to 'show the relationship in paint’ while his ambition for these paintings is to “capture the love and fight in one frame”. This admission reveals a deeply sentimental and thoughtful artist. Auguste is ardent in sharing his experiences of love and marriage with the world and expressing his love of another and, indeed, of life itself. 

Auguste Blackman unmasks what love means to the individual and how this basic desire can transcend all other measures of success and happiness in a persons life. Finally Auguste reveals, “I would like to stay married”. Sounds like a wonderful love story to us.
