MARC QUINN

Framed Meteor VII, 2012

‘Meteor VII’ 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 VII’ indulges in Quinn’s fascination with horticulture, mixing in a little of his dark aesthetic. The print depicts a large Orchid in negative tones: white petals have become black, the areas of shadow taking on a ghostly pink hue. A pop of scarlet-red sits at the orchid’s centre and, around the edges of the square print, Quinn has included snippets of other flowers and fruit in saturated purples and pinks. Beautiful but bewitching, with its hyper-real palette, ‘Meteor VII’ 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.

A NOTE FROM US

WHAT WE LOVE

We love his approach to the use of bold colours, paired with his interest in how people live in and navigate the world. His attention to the complex systems which govern our world, such as our relationship with nature, human desire, identity, and beauty reflect Marc’s passion for symbolic and thoughtful artworks. His hyperrealistic oil paintings of flowers reinvigorate the traditional still-life into vibrant images.
