Discocacti [study] (1986?) [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint on paper, c.75 x 55

Private collection, Melbourne

This work was included in the 1991 Arkley retrospective but not listed in the catalogue; however, it is clearly shown in the slides taken at the exhibition for the Monash Visual Arts library (as reproduced here).

The owner, identified in the Monash gallery files, also lent Red Wedge [#2] 1981 [W/P] to the retrospective. Both works were last recorded in a real estate photo taken in 2013: see now comments under the Red Wedge drawing.
