Mark Wallinger

In 2015, the artist created a series of monumental paintings that reference his own body. His height — or arm span — is the basis of the canvas size, they are exactly this measurement in width and double in height. Created by sweeping black paint-laden hands across the canvas in active, freeform gestures, the id Paintings bear the evidence of their making and of the artist’s performed encounter with the surface.

Mark Wallinger (b.1959, Chigwell) lives and works in London. In 2001, he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale and in 2007 he won the prestigeous Turner Prize. His work Labyrinth, from 2013, is a major and permanent installation for Art on the Underground, commisoned to celebrate 150 years of the London underground. Selected solo exhibitions include Serpentine Gallery, London; Tate Liverpool, Liverpool; Secession Building, Vienna; Museum for Gegenwartskunst, Basel; Palais Des Beaux Arts, Brussels; De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art, Tilburg; Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico City; and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. His work is included in the collections of museums including Tate, London ; MoMA, New York; and Centre Pompidou, Paris.
