This unique, original pen drawing was sketched during Blackman's time spent at the West Australian Ballet. Commissioned in 1988 by W A Ballet Artistic Director Barry Moreland to design a backdrop for his original ballet'The Celestial Mirror', Blackman immersed himself in rehearsals, watching dancers stretch and perform in order to better understand their movements, energy and character.A truly intimate and memorable encounter, Blackman writes of his experience in the original catalogue'Visions' that there were'millions of notes, thousands of brush strokes, all those wracked limbs. And it has taken half a year, non-stop [to design the backdrop] - and that is just the physical time. The dreaming time in incalculable... It is without a doubt that this evocative drawing will continue to inspire you for years to come, just as the dancers inspired Blackman.'Leaping High (From the Ballet Series)', 1988. 20 x 13 cm (height x width).
