Marc Quinn

“Orchids are like perfectly evolved little sculptures … Even though they are a plant's reproductive organs, they pun on human ones too. They make you realise it is colour, life and sexuality that keeps the world turning.”. - Quinn assembles an installation of blooms, selecting from different continents a wide range of species that would in fact never flower at the same time. The installations are photographed and subsequently digitally reworked by the artist before printing, intentionally accentuating the voluptuous, sensual quality of the plants and flowers. Quinn captures these species at their peak of perfection, rescuing them from natural decay to create a moment of timeless beauty.

This print is unique and hand-painted by the artist and dated.

Marc Quinn
Born in London (1964), Marc Quinn studied History of Art at Cambridge, subsequently creating sculpture in a challenging range of media. His early series of marble figures of people who have lost their limbs or were born with a disability culminated in a giant statue of a heavily pregnant Alison Lapper, a woman born without arms, on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, London, in 2005. ‘Self’, a sculpture of the artist's head created from his own frozen blood, is equally uncompromising: first exhibited in 1991, there have been several iterations since. In 2014, the film ‘Marc Quinn: Making Waves’ revealed the extent to which Quinn’s work has become globally recognized and collected, coinciding with his preparations for ‘The Toxic Sublime’ at White Cube, Bermondsey, in 2015. More recently, Quinn has had a major installation of his sculpture in ‘Drawn from Life’ at London’s Sir John Soane Museum.
