Untitled [Zappo] (1988?) [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint on paper, {c.172 x 122?}

Coll.: unknown

One of several similar work-on-paper versions of this composition: see e.g. Untitled [Zappo study #1] (1982) [W/P] and the main work on paper from Zappo; and source material (1988 and earlier) [W/P], as shown in Arkley’s 1988 ‘Casual Works’ exhibition.

This particular work is documented by an undated Polaroid photo in Arkley’s files (reproduced here) – the sole source. The photo is in the same format as Arkley’s file photos of the main works on paper from the other ‘Casual Works’ ensembles Tudor House; and source material (1988 and earlier) [W/P] and Tattooed Head; and source material (1988 and earlier) [W/P], suggesting that this work also dates from 1988. It may have been a preliminary or abandoned earlier attempt at the version shown in ‘Casual Works’.
