Mark of the Cross People

For the first time in 15 years, I’m painting again, exhibiting my work at the Sin In My Heart show in Manchester. Once upon a time, in Amsterdam, I had one of my oil paintings up in a sex shop. But as our curator, Paul Darling remarked, nobody goes to a sex shop to look at the art! When word went out that the theme of the new exhibition was sex, death, sin and religion, I put myself forward as a contributor. How could I not?

Announcing my new piece, oil on canvas 76x91cm, entitled X (the following is NSW)

X - oil on canvas by Mark Wallis

Originally a Photoshop collage, I decided to revisit this 2004 digital print as a big, bad oil painting. I know what you’re thinking. Is it a mythical messiah, or is it classical bondage? Instrument of torture or a recreational X-frame? Is this a guy called Johnny? It’s whatever you want it to be. You can breath now.
