‘The Angelus’ is a deeply evocative image. Derived from the 1979 painting, it sees two figures settle in for a meal. The only source of light is a candle, burning like a beating heart at the work’s centre. Either side are figments of mortality: flowers destined to one day wilt and fruit, to be eaten or rot. Blackman brings out poetic themes in the domestic, creating an almost monastic atmosphere that lingers long after witnessed.

One of Australia’s most iconic artists, Blackman’s work speaks to us all. To live with his visual poetry promises to be an ever-enriching experience for you and your family. This edition is now sold out with the publisher.

Framed and signed by Blackman himself, Collect ‘The Angelus’ before its light is extinguished.
