In this Working Proof impression of ‘Crab from the Rainforest’, Charles Blackman shines his artistic talents on a crab. Abstracted from its habitat, the crustacean takes on a sculptural form, spreading across the paper like a rorschach test.
As a Working Proof, it is extremely rare and demonstrates Backman’s process. Collectors can witness an insight into his practice, wherein colours were carefully arranged to achieve the desired effect. At once intimate and collaborative, this work is collector’s treasure.
Blackman stands among Australia’s most beloved and collectable artists. With a career as distinct as it is diverse, his work is acclaimed for its deep understanding of the human condition. For collectors of prints, Blackman and animal imagery, this work will awe.
