Residence with Gate 1999

Alternate title: House with Gate
Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 175 x 135
signed, dated and titled [on reverse: ‘Residence with Gate 1999 / Howard Arkley 99’]
Private collection, Melbourne

This painting, first shown in Arkley’s Los Angeles exhibition (as ‘House with Gate’), is a stylized variant of Cosy Clinker (1994). Correspondence in 2010 clarified the work’s history and current location.

Noted and reproduced in Carnival as an example of Arkley’s later taste for a grey outline.
