‘Untitled, Lost Painting 6’ by Michael Canney is one of the artist's later abstracts executed in rapid drying alkyd oil paint which Canney used from 1981 to give greater precision of line. This 1985 painting was lost for a number of years but has recently resurfaced and is one of the larger and more dynamic of the period.

Michael Canney provides a great insight into the dynamic form of such a piece in an article for “Constructivist Forum”, 1988, where he states: “Although I have at times used a modular format or grid, I am by temperament drawn towards a more dynamic approach, in which a de-stabilisation of the square occurs through diagonal and oblique divisions of the surface.”

The painting is listed in Michael Canney’s artist's estate website as ‘Untitled, Lost Painting 6’. The work is further authenticated on the verso by the artist’s estate stamp, and there labelled Zig Zag Zawn.
