Logitec (1981?)

Alternate title (?): Logitex
Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 162.5 x 162.5
National Gallery of Australia, Canberra [with Logitex installation]

This intricately ornamental picture, shown at both Tolarno and Solander (Canberra) in 1981 as Logitec (Arkley’s files contain slides with process dates Aug81 and Oct81), is apparently identical with the canvas subsequently incorporated into Logitex(table and chair tableau) (1980-84) [3/M].

The date of 1983 and size 175 x 175 recorded in 1983 and 1991 appear to be erroneous.
