Neapolitan Delight (1993) [kitchen]

Neapolitan Delight [kitchen] 1993

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, c.173 x 135
Coll.: unknown

Exhibited in HA Bellas 5/93; slide in Arkley’s archive (not reproduced elsewhere).

Not to be confused with Neapolitan Delight (1993) [lounge-room].

The source image for this painting, from Gold’s Instant Decorator (see reproduction in Gregory 1992) presents a homely setting; but the cupboard door shown slightly ajar (also in Gold’s sketch) could suggest hidden depths, accentuated by the alarming tilt to the tiled floor added by Arkley.
