Flesh picture
Overview:

Quinn's recurring themes - of life and death, heroism and suffering and man's physical and psychological boundaries - persist to powerful effect. Moulded from cuts of meat and cast in bronze and black patina, the works in ‘Flesh’ are formally displayed on plinths to heighten their relationship to art historical figurative sculpture, another defining feature of Quinn's work.

Titles such as 'Reclining Figure (Venison)', 2004, 'Torso (Lamb)', 2003 and 'Standing Figure (Beef)', 2004 all evoke classical and modern sculpture.
