Australia’s lockdown has spurred reflection in many of us. Created during this period, Auguste Blackman’s self-portraits are broad, textual studies in expression. Despite their vibrant palettes, however, something remains withheld in Auguste's face – there is an inner life we can only glimpse peripherally. This is not something alien. Months spent severed from ordinary life compels us all inward and towards the life of an artist.
A respected Australian artist, Auguste is the progeny of revered artistic dynasty the Blackman family. 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 is a moving addition for collection of expressionism, the Blackmans and portraits.
