The title TopoSphere evokes the life-giving atmospheric layer surrounding the planet, the Greek word meaning both place and theme, and the 3rd-century BCE Greek symbolic concept of life emanating from the centre in a series of concentric spheres. Quinn’s original 2009 Iris paintings were subtitled We share our chemistry with the stars, and the Iris print series shares his abiding theme that, as humans, we are materially connected to everything else, extending to the universe itself. Quinn chose a digital printing technique for this piece to achieve its vibrant and varying high-definition colours.
