‘Birdtalk’ is an avian ode. In his distinct, emotional prose, son of Charles Blackman, Auguste Blackman uses a birds flight through life to remind us of the preciousness of nature. Not just a place for humans, the land is a miraculous tapestry of lives – and here, in a myriad of colours and moments, Blackman impresses this idea. Birds of different colours and feathers flock together, perhaps conversing about the day or as a chorus, singing the sun away.
Blackman states, this is “all the plants, flowers, trees, places she has been. Conversation she has had. Songs she has sung. Babies she has made.” He urges us to not let this be her swansong, but rather a call to care for the environment.
For collectors of Blackman, neo-expressionist art and bird lovers tune into ‘Birdtalk’.
