Untitled [A145] (c.1974-76) [W/P]



Synthetic polymer paint, ink and pencil on paper, 38.4 x 56.4 (sheet)

State Library Victoria [MS 14217/1/1705]

Another drawing related to Arkley’s painting Actuality (Is the Void Between Events) 1976. Here, however, there are three¬†sprayed/linear areas (rather than the usual two), and a smaller, finely-detailed version above.

The intended orientation of this sheet is uncertain, but the vertical format shown here seems more logical, given other comparable examples such as Untitled [A142] (c.1974-76) [W/P].
