Synthetic polymer paint on paper, c.35 x 54

An example of Arkley’s transitional style in 1972, combining quirky critters with abstract shapes.

The original purchaser, who still owns the work, made contact following the TarraWarra survey exhibition in 2015, and has since provided a good photograph.
