‘Meteor III’ is a pigment print by award winning British artist Marc Quinn. Printed onto 300gsm Somerset Photo paper, the print is from a limited edition of 250. Signed and numbered by the artist. The print comes custom framed in a hand crafted narrow matt black aluminium boxed frame profile measuring 5.5mm head on by 35mm in depth with UV protective glass. “Shadow Floating is a method used to beautifully mount artwork onto a foam core using artcare restore – a fully archival and reversible mount. The result is the artwork appearing to float securely upon a backing mount board - creating a wonderful shadow around the edges of the paper."
Contemporary artist Marc Quinn is one of the leading names of the twenty-first century British art scene. Famous for casting his head in ten pints of his own frozen blood, and for crowning Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth with the exceptional marble sculpture of artist Alison Lapper, Quinn has been a rising star of the art world since the 1990s, producing an extensive and distinctive oeuvre like no other. With a penchant for humanity’s darker side and a tendency toward the existential, Quinn creates an art that thinks, always probing life’s big questions through an aesthetic which is captivating. ‘Meteor III’ indulges in Quinn’s fascination with horticulture, mixing in a little of his dark aesthetic. Against a black background, the print depicts a large Orchid in negative tones: white petals have become black, picked out with a thin white line, and the areas of shadow have taken on a ghostly hue. A pop of electric-yellow sits at the orchid’s centre and, around the edges of the square print, Quinn has included snippets of other flowers and fruit, in reds and yellows. Beautiful but bewitching, with its hyper-real palette, ‘Meteor III’ reveals the darker side of mother nature.
Please note: due to the hand crafted nature of this piece, there is approximately a 3-week lead time on this custom framed item.
