Ged Quinn

Evolving from a spectrum of sources in art history, photographs, memory, newspaper cuttings and books, Ged Quinn makes paintings that revisit the tradition of European painting. His seductive canvases, which seem so recognisable, slowly reveal an extravagant mix of European art history and contemporary imagery. By superimposing contemporary references onto grand backdrops of European painting Quinn develops his own environments and mythologies.Quinn studied at the Ruskin, Oxford, Slade School of Art, London the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Rijksakademie Amsterdam.

He is represented by the Friedman Gallery, London.
