Meteor V
‘Meteor V’ 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.
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 V’ 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 orange hue. A pop of burnt-orange sits at the orchid’s centre and, around the edges of the square print, Quinn has included snippets of other flowers and fruit, in electric pinks. Beautiful but bewitching, with its hyper-real palette, ‘Meteor V’ reveals the darker side of mother nature.
