Charles Blackman stands among Australia's most beloved and collectable artists. With a career as distinct as it is diverse, his work is consistently informed by a sense of childlike wonder.
In this work, Blackman imagines a figure facing away from us, hair cascading down her back. Sprayed with seawater, she is reminiscent of a nymph or mermaid, a flower blooming in her lap. ‘Nude and Flower’ is a beguiling entry into Blackman’s iconic girls and flowers motif. The artist once reflected that flowers:
'evoked the people, in a certain kind of gentility, or substance, or reverence, or sensitivity'.
Rather than we to them, flowers change us. One cannot help but to stop and admire a plant in bloom, eyes misty and hands tempted to take.
This poetic work exemplifies perfectly Blackman's mastery of graphic practices. An elegant find for fans of Blackman and modernist art, don’t miss ‘Nude + Flower’. It’s almost sold out.
