Icon Head

160.0 × 121.0 cm

Synthetic polymer paint on paper

Exhibited at HA Tolarno 9/95, and documented by a slide in Arkley’s archive. Additional notes: This work is based on the same source as Untitled [Icon #2] 1984 [W/P], Pittoresque (1984) [W/P], Self Portrait (1996) [W/P] (on this occasion at least evidently suggesting Arkley’s own self-image), Untitled [‘Head’] (1996?) [W/P] and The Icon Head 1997 [W/P]. http://arkleyworks.com/blog/2009/11/28/black-and-white-icon-1995-wp/
