Throughout his career, Charles Blackman has often turned to silhouettes. There is something he finds in the casting of shadows, blank windows and a figure with her back turned to us. Perhaps in these nocturnal sites, Blackman sees the inevitably of transitions, of liminality and unanswered questions.

Laden with the knowledge all is temporary, ‘Evening Primrose’ evokes the poetry between transience and transcendence. It asks whether you can ever know someone, ever see inside their soul.

The great feeler of Australian art, Blackman’s work is a dance of emotion. He is considered an icon of Australian art who is represented in all public collections. An edition of ‘Evening Primrose’ is held at The National Gallery of Australia.

For collectors of Blackman and figurative art, this work holds unfurling meaning.
