Signed and dated in pencil, l.r. (twice): ‘Howard Arkley 74’
State Library Victoria
[MS 14217/1/1711]

To the left of the sheet, black sprayed verticals, accentuated by spattered ink, cross a set of stacked outlined squares, in a variation of the Seltsamer motif (compare for example Untitled [A183] (c.1974-76) [W/P]).

The inscription and traces of mounting on the back suggest this work may have been exhibited at some stage.
