In this two panel work - ‘Too Big Too Small’ - Charles Blackman profiles a woman front to back. Peppered with humour, frankness and artistic intuition, this work is a bare-faced homage to the female body. Across his career, Blackman repeatedly returned to themes of femininity. He once wrote of this; “My mother gave birth to me and I soon discovered I was really a cork. I loved women so I bobbed about on the sea of femininity. But… I didn’t drown. I float on this ocean. I paint women. The images of women. The essence of women. Life without art is impossible. Life without women is impossible.”

A bonafide icon, no history of Australian modernism is replete without Blackman. Beloved for his emotion-driven vision, his work brims with life, humility and talent. For collectors of iconic art, works on paper and the female form, let ‘Too Big Too Small’ amplify your life.
