One of the featured pieces in The Blackman's collection, the original artwork was produced by Blackman in 1953. In this playful self-portrait we see the artist transported back to childhood. There is an implicity naivety in botht the theme and the appearance of the work, yet the complexity of the shadows and interplay of colours reveal a careful sense of composition and a sophisticated awareness of colour. The striking geometric planes in the stark urban background indicate Blackman's interest in geometric abstract art.
This piece is a digital archival fine art limited edition.
