Quinn's Chaos Paintings are an evolution of his History Paintings in which Quinn continuously adds splashes and obscures the underlaying image with a chaotic and complex collection of brightly coloured paint. The final artwork, with the original news image now only visible in glimpses, appears as a visual manifestation of the never-ending news cycle to which we are now subjected. No matter how important the original story is, it will always be obscured by the events that follow it. Paradoxically, at the end of the process, this visual chaos has a sense of calm, resembling an Impressionist landscape.
