Mark Barker & Terence McCormack Left to r.r. black vinyl paint, exterior door paint, collected dog hair, installed at Roland Ross, Margate. 2023
Left to r.r. 2023 is a work conceived during the installation of the exhibition in which the windows of the gallery space have been painted black. Dog hair has also been delicately applied using the same colour of exterior paint to various points on the window. The legibility of reading ‘left to right’ has been reframed or reduced to ‘rr’ – a stammer, hesitation or rolling sound in the mouth or the mind. The work also makes an oblique reference to the initials of Roland Ross.
