Self is often considered to be Quinn's signature piece. This is a frozen sculpture of the artist's head made from 4.5 litres of the artist's own frozen blood taken from his body over a period of five months. This work is repeated every five years and will result in a unique record of the artist as he ages.
The edition is based on a photograph of the frozen sculpture printed with pigmented inks on a gesso-coated aluminium panel. Using Factum Arte's specially designed flatbed printer, each panel is overprinted 3 times, in order to achieve the necessary intensity of colour.
Self is published by Paragon Press (London, England) in an edition of 59 copies. Each panel is signed and numbered by the artist on the reverse. In addition to the edition, a number of the panels have been over-painted by the artist to produce a group of unique works ( Handpainted Self ).
