Mosaic (1980)

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 203.6 x 78.6

Coll.: unknown

Exhibited in HA Coventry 3/80 (also the process date of one of Arkley’s file slides).

Based on an embroidery pattern, probably derived from one of Arkley’s source books. Crawford & Edgar, possibly reflecting a comment by Arkley himself, suggest there was a popular culture reference here to Space Invader ‘munchers’ (Spray 32).
