Welcome to Metamorphosis from The Masterwork Series by Charles Blackman. In Metamorphosis, Charles Blackman captures his beloved Alice enraptured by change. Speaking to the universal yet deeply personal experience of transition, Blackman gives voice to the childhood heroine' s inner life, reminding us how much our subjectivity bears on how we experience the world. As poet Judith Wright remarked, "it is through feeling, as well as sight, that we must apprehend his work".
The Masterworks Series is an unprecedented revival of Charles Blackman' s oeuvre, gleaned from the artists powerful image making from of the late 1950's and early 1960's. Vital to the images in this series are experiences recognizable to us all. From lost love to the inevitable close of childhood - Charles Blackman' s ability to feel the beauty and pain of life through his art is core to what makes him a living legend.
