‘Selection of source photographs for “Suburban House” series’ 1987 [3/M]

Framed photographs

signed and dated [‘Howard Arkley 87’]

Arkley archive

As Arkley noted later – see Untitled [suburban house source photos] (1996 and earlier] [3/M] – many of the house photos he used for reference were collected from real estate agents. However, these examples appear to be original photographs taken by the artist.

A slide taken for the Monash Visual Arts library (reproduced here), taken at the 1991 exhibition, shows 5 of the 6 photos included.
