The inhabitants of Auguste Blackman’s works are always lovable. Whimsical with a twinge of melancholy, his creatures are part imaginary, part familiar. In this large-scale work, he paints ‘Mr. Rabbit’. Almost leaping from the frame, it recalls Auguste’s father Charles Blackman’s enthrallment with Alice in Wonderland.
Whether reflecting on the experience of growing up among artists or demonstrating a born passion for painting, Auguste remains a dynamic and rich voice in Australian art. This work represents a buoyant addition to collections of Australian art, fans of Blackman and animal imagery.
