Auguste Blackman’s Royal Owl is a commanding, wise work. Featuring a giant, feathered owl, it recalls the cultural significance of owls while simultaneously transforming the bird into something other-worldly. "At the end of a long day the wise Owl has everything he could possibly want within himself. He is content and gives thanks to the moon for a wonderful life. This is a painting about contentment and inner peace. We all want to find these feelings in our daily lives and it is always possible on any given day. The Owl also has the capacity to create a party that runs into the night. Celebrating the moon with friends as he has wine and tea available. In a funny way when I make a good painting like this, I too feel like celebrating."Auguste is a respected Australian artist who has consistently exhibited for almost forty years. That he is the progeny of revered artistic dynasty the Blackman family, contributes a unique perspective to his work. Whether reflecting on the experience of growing up among artists, or demonstrating a born passion for painting, Auguste remains a dynamic and rich voice in Australian art.
