Untitled (Man in Suit) (1985?) [W:P] copy

Black fibre-tipped pen and synthetic polymer paint on two sheets of paper, {c.180 x 50 overall}
Private collection, Melbourne

This work clearly belongs to the series of large doubled-line works on paper made by Arkley in 1985.

A Polaroid photo in the artist’s files (also probably taken around 1985) shows the upper half of the life-size figure with an unidentified spectator.
