Like Barbara Blackman to Charles, the faces populating ‘Women’ (the series from which this work stems) are Auguste Blackman’s muses. They continue a longtime art historical interest in the feminine, placing, as the artist states “iconic heads of women” foremost. There are echoes of Pablo Picasso’s cubist portraits, Henri Matisse’s bliss and his father Charles Blackman’s bittersweet.

This work is a reflection of Auguste’s upbringing shepherded by a vibrant woman, and of the diverse and vital roles women play worldwide. What is home without women? “It is her love in all things” muses Auguste, “the world will only succeed with women at the helm… against all odds she will prevail”.

Depicting a set of peach-toned twins, this work is a hypnotic find.
