Untitled [A192] (c.1974-76) [W/P]



Synthetic polymer paint and ink on paper, 56 x 76 (sheet)
Private collection, Melbourne

This work, previously known only through a reproduction in the artist’s archive, and listed as Untitled [archive slide #13] (c.1974-76) [W/P], came to light in 2020, in a folder of Arkley’s early drawings (mostly student works).

It is clearly related to extant examples, notably Untitled [W47] (c.1974-76) [W/P]. Here, though, the splashed ink at the left is particularly prominent.
