In this poignant work, Auguste Blackman captures a resting bird. A figure of dreams, memories and vulnerability, ‘Dreambird’ it at once warm and melancholic, touched by the artist’s recent loss. It speaks to the passing of Auguste’s father, Charles Blackman and friend Mirka Mora, both of whom were iconic Australian artists.
For Auguste, birds represent care, poetry and the flight of imagination. Cast in feathered brushstrokes and vivid hues, this work recalls Mirka, who started drawing at Charles’s encouragement. Caught between permanence and flux, ‘Dreambird’ is a conduit for time, space and the connection between artists, friends and a father and son.
A respected Australian artist, Auguste’s work has edified collectors for almost forty years. That he is the progeny of an icon gives his work a unique perspective. Whether reflecting on his upbringing or pay homage to a feathered friend, Auguste remains a dynamic, treasured voice in Australian art.
