Throughout his oeuvre, Charles Blackman has repeatedly evoked the garden. In the early 1950s, he relocated to Brisbane where, with his future wife Barbara, he lived near flower farms at Tamborine. From here, his love of gardens bloomed. Not only exquisite in form, flowers were also some of the last stimuli Barbara could make out before going blind.

In ‘Tropical’, Blackman peers out from a circular window into the garden. Buzzing with life, he pictures a cluster of blooms, each utterly distinct from the next. This is a celebration of life’s small pleasures; a call to stop and smell the roses.

An icon of Australian art, Blackman’s work is always pregnant with meaning. For him, a flower is never just a flower; it is a wisp of beauty destined to wilt, a universe unto itself or a way to communicate something otherwise inexplicable. For collectors of Blackman, floral art or those in need of a Secret Garden, ‘Tropical’ is for you.
