This exhibition, presented in two parts, one at The Fruitmarket Gallery and the other at Dundee Contemporary Arts, focuses on Mark Wallinger’s id Paintings (2015/16), his most recent body of work – an ambitious series of large-scale Rorschach blot-like images created entirely by the artist’s hands. To make the works he used both hands simultaneously, the left mirroring the right, creating symmetry through his gesture. In making these works he has moved his focus from, as he says, “painting ‘I’s to ‘I paint’” – or from image to action.
