Light and Bright (1994)

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 203, x 153
Coll.: unknown

This painting, reproduced on the invitation for the 1994 ‘Pointillist Suburb’ show, is based on the same real estate source as A Splendid Superior Home (1989) and Stucco Home (1991).

A version of this composition was also incorporated into the planning for the abortive collaborative project between Arkley and Peter Tyndall in 1994-5 (see general comments for 1994).
