Skipping Girls

89.0 × 68.0 cm

pigment print on paper

Description: Following on from his ‘Schoolgirl’ series, Blackman hones his interest in how our youth can be affected. This time however, he turns to commercial imagery and explores how it can bombard young minds. Edition of 125 Signature: signed lower right and numbered lower left from the edition of 125 and with the embossed seal of the artist lower left
. Additional notes: In Skipping Girl Blackman nods, tongue-in-cheek towards an icon of the Melbourne skyline - the neon sign for “Skipping Girl Vinegar”.  Drive down Victoria Street and there she beams, unmissable, carefree and forever mid-skip.
