Auguste Blackman 'Birdies'

$550.00 Regular price

From Auguste Blackman’s imagination to your collection, this work is the fruit of boundless creativity. It toys with the boundary between the civilised and uncivilised, where whimsy and threat collide in a kaleidoscope of colour.

Like a matured ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, 'Birdies' is delightful yet somehow sobered, keenly aware that on either side of pandemonium is existence in all its complexities. In Auguste’s universe, even the fantastical strive for connection.

The decision to release Birdies was inspired by Auguste’s mother Barbara Blackman, who prophetically told her son “2020 will be a year full of surprises”. Auguste is also the son of Charles Blackman - an icon of Australian art. This work will enrich collections of Australian figurative art, fans of Blackman and the ‘kidult’ within. Let 2020 be your year of surprises too!
