British artist Ged Quinn’s first exhibition with his new work will be held at the Stephen Friedman Gallery in London from April 28th to June 1st, 2011.
Quinn’s richly layered paintings combine striking landscapes with fragments of figurative narrative from the breadth of history, myth and ironic imagination. The works are awe-inspiring in their combination of painterly skill and provocative conceptual intent.
Presented in this exhibition are new, large-scale paintings and portraits. Sun infused skies shower light on dense forestland and rolling hills in vibrantly colored pictorial tableaux. In the foreground of each work, intricate scenes are played out, gesturing towards an array of historical, cultural and philosophical references. Decrepit wooden shacks and crumbling brick towers stand in stark contrast to their opulent surroundings. Private View will be held on Thursday April 28 from 18:00 – 20:00.
