Organic Model F (Liquid) (1976)

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 211 x 162

Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane (2017.252)

The present work, shown at the 2006 Arkley retrospective as ‘Untitled,’ is identified here as in Arkley’s 1976 Tolarno exhibition, when it was photographed (slide in artist’s archive).

Cf. Organic Model D (Intuitive Reason) (1976), also in the 1976 exhibition (clearly a different work).

A closely related canvas was exhibited in HA Coventry 5/77: see Organic Model A (Thought Form) (1977?).
