‘We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars (SQ 200R)’ 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 150. 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.

‘We Share Our Chemistry With the Stars (SQ 200R)’ is a print from Quinn’s iris series, for which Quinn has employed the Duchampian readymade model, his found ‘object’ taking the form of the human eye which, through a process of enlargement, is transformed into near-abstract art. Quinn’s irises are breathtakingly beautiful: glassy round shots of intense pigment, coalescing in a way that reminds us of the spectacular power of nature and humanity.

‘We Share Our Chemistry With the Stars (SQ 200R)’ depicts a marble-like iris with intense shades of burnt-orange, golden-yellow and dusty-violet, the large, black pupil at its centre containing, in Quinn’s words, “all of the mystery and uncertainty of life.”

Please Note: Due to the hand crafted nature of this piece, there is approximately a 3-week lead time on this custom framed item.
