Lewis Carroll’s Alice recurs throughout Charles Blackman’s work, transformed into a symbol for his former wife, Barbara Blackman’s, diminishing eyesight. In Golden Alice, she looks past the viewer, gingerly clasping a bouquet of flowers. A teacup tips towards her.

This Alice is almost an apparition. She hangs in orange space, cupped by the evocation of a chair. Serene and touching, Golden Alice is a tender document of inspiration, love and disorientation.

Printed as part of a portfolio of five prints, published by Nadine Armadio for Blackman’s seventieth birthday. Hand-signed and visually striking, Golden Alice is an engrossing find for collectors of Blackman.
