Geography and New Geography are the latest in Marc Quinn’s ongoing Iris series. Quinn says, “These new pieces are inspired by Ortelius’ classical idea that ‘geography is the eye of history’. It’s a fundamental truth in the world, which we are feeling now more than ever given that we are spending more time in our cities, countries and homes. I hope these editions present an optimistic worldview, that no matter how bad things are now, it will pass. New Geography is a presentation of hope for the future. The pieces are a representation of a current world and an optimistic vision for the future, and what we hope the future will be like.”
