In ‘Crab from Rainforest’, Charles Blackman shines his artistic talents on a crab. Abstracted from its habitat, this crab takes on a sculptural form, spreading across the paper like a rorschach test. It is cast in rich blues, reds and purples; at once exuberant and refined.
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.
