Untitled [A49] (c.1974-6) [W/P]

Ink & pencil on paper, 31.8 x 25.3 (sheet)
Inscribed in pencil, below image: ‘3 in twice around / always moving compass left to right’; also inscribed in pencil (verso): ‘B’
Private collection, Melbourne

The inscription spells out the idea of movement in the sequence of curves. Possibly identical with an unidentified work shown at Tolarno in 1995: see now Circular Model (1976) [W/P].

See also Untitled [A72] (c.1974-76) [W/P], where a similar linear pattern is over-sprayed with black dots.
