Marc Quinn (Gana Art Centre) picture
Overview:

This exhibition presents 20 of Quinn’s works including new paintings and bronze sculptures. The large-scale sculptures using different materials and powerfully coloured paintings of hyper-realistic manner insist dualism between visuality and materiality.

There are three main currents of Quinn’s evolving work represented in this exhibition. Science in general, the impact of advancing technology on our sense of ourselves and his modeling – remodeling and mutating the British supermodel Kate Moss’s body.

Quinn said that what was interesting to him about doing the Kate Moss sculptures was that she seemed to be a contemporary deity and that one of the problems we have is that our deities are only inhabited by our desires rather than by anything the deity itself represents, which has some kind of moral, spiritual and metaphysical structure.
