Charles Blackman’s ‘The Interior’ is a haunting work. It sees a ghostly figure bend towards a window, behind which sits a vase of flowers. The symbolism is rich. Interiors evoke one’s inner world, stripes recall a gaol cell, flowers embody mortality and windows speak to the psychic distance one can feel from their surroundings.
‘The Interior’ was created in 1966 when Blackman returned home after living in London for five years. It gives form to the feeling of coming home after years away – the strange cadence of receding familiarity. This is the same house, but you’re different now.
Profoundly evocative, ‘The Interior’ recalls a distinct moment in time. It is rare and museum-quality, represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia. For admirers of Blackman and collectable prints, escape into ‘Passage’.
