'Four Schoolgirls' undercuts playfulness with desolation. Four girls - heads bowed, backs turned - are locked in a secret bond that Blackman, usually so forthcoming leaves sealed and unknowable.

Blackman's schoolgirls merge threat with innocence. They recall the transience of youth, the difficulty of human connection and alienation in an increasingly urbanised society. Rather than didactic however, 'Four Schoolgirls' pricks this ideas with a quiet poetry.

One of Australia's most iconic artists, Charles's work speak to us all. To live with his visual poetry promises to be an ever-enriching experience for you and your family. For admirers of Blackman and his legacy, 'Four Schoolgirls' is a rich find.
