In this glistening portrait of a phoenix, Auguste Blackman envisions a bird soaring high. Flaming plumage giving way to a darkening sky, there is an epic quality to ‘Firebird’, an evocation of freedom, triumph and escape.

Auguste’s birds are both swansongs to care for the environment and metaphors for the passageway from life. In portraits of birds, the artist seeks to recall “all the plants, flowers, trees, places she has been. Conversation she has had. Songs she has sung. Babies she has made.”

For collectors of Blackman, neo-expressionist art and bird lovers behold ‘Firebird’.
