artist biography

Marc Quinn (b. 1964) rose to prominence in the 1990’s and was quickly established as one of the leading artists of his generation. Early in his career, works such as Self (1991) – a bust of the artist produced in his own frozen blood and Alison Lapper Pregnant (2005) – a statue of a pregnant, disabled woman created for London’s Trafalgar Square, brought him to international attention. Whilst Quinn works across media and uses a broad range of materials - both traditional and unconventional - his painting, sculpture and drawing explore recurring themes of the relationship between art and science, the relationship between the natural and man-made and our perception of beauty, among other things. Quinn’s work is in the collections of important institutions worldwide, including Tate Modern in London, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. He has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries including Tate Gallery (1995) in London, Fondazione Prada (2000) in Milan, MACRO (2006) in Rome, Fondation Beyeler (2009) in Basel, Fondazione Giorgio Cini (2013) in Venice and White Cube (2015) in London.
