These seemingly abstract paintings are actually literally figurative as they portray flesh, the very material of figuration. The paintings both attract and repel and to Quinn they are about acceptance of the inherent duality of the human condition – "that a person can be repelled by the idea of killing an animal and seeing their flesh, but that that same person can order a steak in a restaurant and enjoy it. I am not preaching morally, I am in the same situation, it’s one of the ways humans cope with the world and it is a moral paradox."
