Description - Mark Wallinger by Donna De Salvo
Mark Wallinger came to prominence in Britain in the mid 1980s and has since earned an international reputation. He was short-listed for the Turner Prize in 1995 and recently completed a new piece of work, Ecce Homo, for the empty plinth in Trafalgar Square, London.Wallinger is one of the most consistently interesting and ambitious British artists of the last 15 years. His work utilizes anxiety, humor, and intelligence to reveal the complex sets of structures and relationships in which daily life unfolds. Wallinger's practice has developed from painting to encompass photography, video, sculpture and installation work. Employing the tools of irony and satire, Wallinger explores issues surrounding the complex themes of identity, class, race, and religion.
