Striated lines serve as one of the quintessential abstract motifs within Charles Blackman's figurative art, a hallmark that extends from the mid-60s onward. In this particular drawing, Blackman departs from his usual figuration, venturing into the realm of experimentation. With charcoal in hand, he embarks on a creative journey down the page, leaving behind a captivating array of staticky trails. This abstraction, as abstractions are wont to do, grants the mind the freedom to roam, conjuring images of venetian blinds, prison bars, a striped skivvy, and rain cascading down a windshield.

This artwork, originating circa 1970 and sourced from the artist's personal archive, exudes a remarkable and distinct graphic essence. It is an essential acquisition for collectors of Blackman's oeuvre and a stylish addition for aficionados of mid-century art. Adorned with a meticulously crafted frame and safeguarded by artglass, it presents itself as a must-have addition that's simply too "striking" to resist.
