Untitled [A138] (c.1974-76) [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint and ink on paper, 38.5 x 56.5 (sheet)

Private collection, Melbourne

This intricate drawing, exhibited in the 2006 Arkley retrospective, is clearly related to Arkley’s ‘organic’ abstract canvases of 1976-7, e.g. Organic Model (Intuitive Reason) (1976)

Possibly identical with one of the unidentified works shown in Arkley’s 1995 Tolarno exhibition, e.g. Liquid Tracing (1977) [W/P].
