During the European Renaissance, depictions of flowers became a way for an artist or patron to communicate their worldliness. A painting of a non-native plant indicated that its creator had access to among the most rare and fleeting of beauties. In this work, Auguste Blackman eschews this notion to instead, prize a flower close to home.
A respected Australian artist, Auguste is the progeny of revered artistic dynasty the Blackman family. Whether reflecting on the experience of growing up among artists, or demonstrating a born passion for painting, he remains a dynamic and rich voice in Australian art.
For collectors of Blackman, still life or expressionistic art, invite this eternal bouquet home.
