Sixty six paintings, each his height or arm span in width and double that in height, these new paintings bring into focus identity as a recurring theme within Wallinger’s practice. They move his practice, as he says, ‘from ‘painting ‘I’s to ‘I paint’ – from image to action. Placing these new works in the context of Wallinger’s practice as a whole, the book includes new essays from Fiona Bradley, Director of The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, and freelance curator and writer Timo Valjakka, and an interview between Mark Wallinger and Beth Bate, Director of Dundee Contemporary Arts.
