Homefront Strips (1993)

Synthetic polymer paint on 5 canvases, each 135 x 23
Private collection, Melbourne

This work was exhibited in HA Bellas 5/93 as shown here (reproducing Arkley’s archive slide); the check-list notes the title only. Further details indicated were provided by the present owner in Feb.2022.

The canvases might be seen as precursors, on a smaller scale, of the Heide installation¬†Outside-Inside-Out 1995, which in turn echoed Arkley’s late 1970s/early 80s ‘door’ canvases.
