Untitled [A228] (c.1974-76) [W/P]

Synthetic polymer paint, crayon and ink on paper, 62 x 84.5 (sheet)

Private collection, Melbourne

Like a number of Arkley’s larger-scale ‘white’ drawings, this sheet is divided into two halves. Here, however, the sheet is incomplete, the left half remaining blank.

The completed image (measuring approximately 54 by 35.5 cm) is reminiscent in scale and character of Untitled [A220] (c.1974-76) [W/P]; see also the larger variant Untitled [A229] (c.1974-76) [W/P]. In this case, though, the short crayon lines are horizontal, and arranged differently.

This sheet was found in the artist’s studio collection in 2020 and added to this catalogue in June 2020.
