Catalogue Note

"To create these hyperrealist oil paintings, Quinn creates a still-life arrangement in his studio using flowers and fruit bought in London on a particular day...The paintings depict a frozen moment of 'unnatural' time. Often large in scale and dramatically colored, their beauty belies a sinister subtext: the relentless human desire to control nature. Titled after freaks of ecology, the works offer up a corrupt beauty that suggests our possible future."
