Marc Quinn Collection
Portfolio of eight prints showing details of Marc Quinn's hyper realistic floral oil paintings. Since the 1990s Marc Quinn has been exploring the relationship between nature and beauty and the manipulation of both, developing his artistic practice through the themes of vanitas, mementum mori, the suspension of the passage from life to death and the search for eternal life and beauty.
A visual inquiry into the quest for beauty achieved by means of nature manipulation. His flowers, so colorful that they almost appear excessive, have a very sensual, gleaming and fleshy surface. Frozen in time, they meditate on the possibility to defeat mortality through scientific knowledge and artistic expression.

Six Moments of Sunrise (Portfolio of 6) – Portfolio of pigment prints on paper.
This set of six color etchings, each signed, dated and numbered are initiated by renowned art collector and publisher Charles Booth-Clibborn and Paragon Press. The full title of this work is ‘Six Moments of Sunrise on the Ganges Delta’. But the depicted species are not all originated from the Ganges Delta. For his flower pieces, Quinn makes various flower installations, selecting a wide range of species from different continents that would usually never bloom at the same time - here mixing exotic flowers with red berries and blue orchids. The flowers are preserved in perfect bloom by being plunged into sub-zero silicone. He intentionally accentuates the voluptuous nature of the plants and flowers.
Quinn’s flower prints explore two persisting leitmotifs of his work – beauty and death. They investigate beauty, both as it manifests itself in the natural world through flowers, and how it is mediated through human intervention.
