Paradise Garden’ is a spellbinding image. In it two unclothed figures, perhaps Adam and Eve, recline in a garden. Plants coil around them, the sky stewing with distant rapture. Eve inhales a flower’s perfume, Adam lies prone — is he asleep or unconscious? Like a thorned flower or poisoned fruit, ‘Paradise Gardens’ deals in beauty and threat. It is sumptuous and strange, an earthly delight at the rainbow’s end.

Paradise Gardens’ has never been on the market. It can be understood as a working proof, is rare and comes from the artist’s personal collection. For fans of Blackman and monochromatic art, wander into ‘Paradise Gardens’.
