Synthetic polymer paint and ink on paper, c.22.5 x 15 (image), 31.5 x 22.5 (sheet)

Coll.: unknown

In this unusual example, twig-like linear forms occupy an ovoid field.

This work was definitely exhibited in the 1991 Arkley survey at Monash, identifiable via general installation photo taken for Monash VA slide collection (detail reproduced here). It may also have been one of the smaller drawings included in the ‘White Painting’ section of the artist’s 1988 ‘Casual Works’ exhibition, although available installation photos are hard to decipher with confidence.
