In the extremely rare ‘Floating’, Charles Blackman is at his utmost evocative. In sparing lines, he draws a figure levitating above wheat. It radiates peace, the visual embodiment of falling asleep, submitting to the realm of dreams.
Blackman’s art is for the dreamers and lovers. It cares deeply for beauty, setting up moments that linger long after viewing. For collectors of the artist and rare graphics, float away with ‘Floating’.
It was created with a Perspex sheet, making it even more beautifully slight.
