Recording (Scientific Knowledge) (1975)

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, c.170 x 240

Coll.: unknown

Unidentified work shown in Arkley’s second Tolarno exhibition (Aug.1976) and then in the 1991 Arkley survey at Monash; unfortunately, however, there do not appear to be any installation photos to assist with identification of the painting.

The proportions listed in the 1976 Tolarno check-list suggest that it may have been identical with one of the larger canvases shown at Tolarno 4/75 (cat.nos.1-3: see exhibition entry), or one of the other works from this period, e.g. Untitled [Sprayed and straight lines] (1975?)
