Mark Wallinger
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Year made: 1993
This piece is characteristic of the style which Wallinger adopted in the early 90s. Mark Wallinger is one of Britain's foremost contemporary artists. He is perhaps best known for Ecce Homo, a life-size sculpture of Christ that occupied the 'Fourth Plinth' in London's Trafalgar Square in 1999. From the mid-1980s his work has addressed the traditions and values of British society, its class system and organized religion. The range of approaches he has adopted reflects his wish to have a broad appeal and highlights his roots in a tradition of British left-wing thought.
Location: London
Date acquired: 30 July 1997
