Coll.: unknown

This canvas, shown in 1987 at both Roslyn Oxley9 and the Anima Gallery, Adelaide, is a close variant of Felony (1983), distinguishable only on close inspection – see e.g. the different shapes at upper left, slightly different greens, etc.

Slides of both works are held in Arkley’s archive.
