Marc Quinn

Marc Quinn’s wide-ranging of pieces displays a preoccupation with the mutability of the body and the dualisms that define human life: spiritual and physical, surface and depth, cerebral and sexual.

Quinn develops this experimental conceptual works that are mostly figurative of this ideas, in materials from ice and blood to glass, marble or lead.

The artist paintings, drawings and sculptures evidence the distance of our body and our minds. A conflict between natural and cultural has a grip nowadays.

In 1999, Quinn began a series of marble sculptures of amputees as a reinterpretation of the Greek and Roman statuary and their representation of perfection, once again emphasis on the body.

Quinn created a major piece of public art using a, a woman who was born without arms, when she was heavily pregnant, as inspiration.

Other key themes in his work include genetic modification and hybridism. His creation from 2000 called Garden is a walk-through installation of impossibly beautiful flowers that will never decay.

Quinn has also explored the potential artistic uses of DNA, making a portrait of a sitter by extracting strands of DNA and placing it in a test-tube. Quinn’s wide range of works meditates on our attempts to understand or overcome the transience of human life through scientific knowledge and artistic expression. He speaks up his mind by the creations he shows to the world.

I would like to show appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this type of problem. After surfing around through the internet and getting notions that were not productive, I thought my life was done. Being alive without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve fixed by way of this short post is a serious case, and those that might have badly affected my entire career if I hadn’t encountered the website. Your main expertise and kindness in handling every item was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thank you very much for the impressive and sensible help. I won’t be reluctant to propose the blog to anybody who will need recommendations on this situation.
