History & Chaos
Marc Quinn's new series of work on view at the Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas
"History & Chaos", on view at the Goss-Michael Foundation from March-August 2019, is the presentation of Quinn's "History" and "Chaos" paintings. As an evolution of Quinn's photorealist "History Paintings" representing press photographs of civil unrest comes the artist's "Chaos Paintings" which are premiering in Dallas. Appropriating images from social media and the never-ending news cycle, Quinn creates abstract paintings on top of photorealist images of events happening in the world today. With these artworks Quinn is examining the line between creation and destruction.

These works have been drawn from across Quinn's 30-year career and from multiple series, exploring his enduring interest in identity.
