Marc Quinn  In The Night Garden: Hale Bopp

Orchids regularly crop up in Marc Quinn’s work, allowing him to further explore themes of beauty and death. For In the Night Garden: Hale-Bopp, reminiscent of his Meteor Series, Quinn frames an orchid with different plants and fruit.

To create the artwork, Quinn photographs the flowers and digitally-reworks them prior to printing, deliberately accentuating the voluptuous nature of his carefully chosen subjects. Of orchids, Quinn has commented: ‘Orchids are like perfectly evolved little sculptures in themselves, they’re full of colour, interesting shapes and beauty. Even though they are a plant’s reproductive organs, they pun on human ones too. They make you realise it is colour, life and sexuality that keeps the world turning’.

In The Night Garden: Hale-Bopp is from a limited edition of just 20, signed and numbered on the front by the artist.

Young British Artist Marc Quinn creates provocative sculptural portraits composed of organic materials, such as in his ongoing series of “Blood Head” self portraits, in which a cast of his head is made with over nine pints of his own frozen blood. Quinn also fabricates sculptures using more traditional media such as bronze, often depicting contorted bodies or people with unusual physical characteristics—amputees, or those who have undergone sex-change surgery. Quinn has also examined the implications of genetic modification and scientific advancement. His 2001 work DNA Garden features the DNA of 75 plant species and two humans, re-staging the conditions of the Garden of Eden through scientific means.
