Christabel Blackman Statement

Ebb and Flow of Memories - a Solo Exhibition
Manyung Gallery Malvern August 2015

Christabel Blackman’s new paintings entice us to enter into an imaginary world coloured by treasured moments of reflection and love.

Most recently, Christabel spent several months in her Spanish studio in Valencia. During her trip, she swapped her habitual life classes in musical Australian pubs for serene and classical studies in Gothic palaces, thus creating a new and inspiring creative environment. Being immersed in the contrasts of eternal and ephemeral, ancient and contemporary is manifest in this new exhibition at Manyung Gallery, Malvern.

Christabel explains that “Australians in Europe are immediately seduced by the awesomeness of everything. For me, living between these contrasting Antipodean cultures pushes daily events into a sharply vibrant light. My studio in Valencia is in an old villa on the edge of a pine forest, where the sun sets purple and orange behind the emerald hues. Residents are a pair of gorgeous cats who are my favourite muses. My florid and ornate garden has decorative ceramics, stonewalls, carob and olive trees, sage and rosemary hedges, lavender and jasmine vines. Valencia is the home of sophisticated decorative arts, swirling colourful patterns are prevalent in every village and inspiration is at the turn of any corner.”

Christabel continues to note that “being a pictorial troubadour, a drifter between cultures, linguist and lover of culinary delights, I revel in that seemingly illusive moment of happiness. The yearning for the moment past and the eagerness of all tomorrows, all wrapped up in the celebration of the here and now.

I believe that our lives are richer because of art.”

Christabel’s images evoke and provoke emotions; the girl, the cat, the window, the table or bouquet are all images that become both her subjects and muses. They are elaborate and complex, intertwined with patterned surfaces, at once decorative and provocative. Her works offer a doorway into a world of emotions and beauty, transporting the viewer to a world worthy of wonder.
