Marc Quinn


Born in London in 1964, Quinn studied at Cambridge University before returning to London to establish his career as an artist. Quinn came to prominence in the early 1990s with his sculpture Self (1991). Often grouped with the YBAs or Young British Artists.

 

A sensitive exponent of the art of anatomy and of issues relating to the subject of mortality, his sculptures take the viewer into a territory that both stretches our understanding of what it is to be human and of what sculpture itself can be.

 

Although Quinn is known as a sculptor, he has also produces paintings, prints and photographic work. His use of non-traditional materials speaks to his interest in understanding the profundities of the corporeal body and the abundance of nature, in their beauty and their messy reality.

 

His work has been exhibited at numerous international museum and galleries such as the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou, MCA in Chicago and the Fondazione Prada in Italy.
