Untitled [A124] (c.1974-76) [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint, ink and pencil on paper, 38.5 x 56.5 (sheet)

Private collection, Melbourne

The orientation of this drawing, comprising contrasting solid grey and black sprayed areas, is uncertain – as with a number of the other sheets in Arkley’s studio collection.

In the Arkley survey show at TarraWarra (Dec.2015-Feb.2016), it was hung vertically, with the solid dark shape to the left, giving the interesting impression of a door opening onto a turbulent abstract scene.
