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
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.
