Untitled 1980 is quintessential West Coast aesthetic in the form of a painted assemblage. Its compact size complements the hand made approach while a visual assault from bright sweeps of applied colour ensures that the irreverent attitude doesn't go unnoticed. It's conceivable that Arnoldi would have influenced later generations of Californian Artists including the currently in demand Mark Grotjahn. Acrylic on wood construction, 210 x 203 x 140mm. Auction estimate (AU$ 3,900-6,600).
