Auguste Blackman, son of Charles Blackman, carries on his father’s legacy with the fantastical ‘Tea Bunny’. Present is the White Rabbit and Alice, connected with a stream of tea, as though an umbilical cord. Butterflies gather nearby. A strange pathos intersects the work’s whimsy; this work is as much an ode to Alice in Wonderland as it is to Auguste’s childhood. Cast in a complex and personal light, this Alice is an homage to Charles Blackman’s legacy, the wonder of a childlike eye and chaos.
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. For collectors of the Blackmans and admirers of Alice in Wonderland, come for tea.
