Marc Quinn

On Vegetarianism derives from Quinn's renowned series of Flesh paintings, which have been produced by the artist over a number of years and reflect the recurring themes from his oeuvre: life and death, heroism and suffering, and the physical and psychological boundaries of human beings. The paintings themselves both attract and repel, and to Quinn they are about the inherent duality of the human condition. As Quinn says, 'a person can be repelled by the idea of killing an animal and seeing their flesh, but that same person can order a steak in a restaurant and enjoy it... it's one of the ways humans cope with the world and it is a moral paradox.'

Marc Quinn
Marc Quinn (born in London in 1964) studied history of art at Robinson College, Cambridge, subsequently working extensively in sculpture, paintings and drawings using media ranging from dramatic materials such as ice, blood and even excreta, to the more conventional glass, marble and lead. His marble figures of amputees, a meditation on the idealized figures of Greek and Roman statuary, culminated in a giant statue of a heavily pregnant Alison Lapper, a woman born without arms, on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. ‘Self’, a sculpture of the artist's head created from the frozen blood of the artist himself is equally uncompromising.
