Marc Quinn's wide-ranging oeuvre displays a preoccupation with the mutability of the body and the dualisms that define human life: spiritual and physical, surface and depth, cerebral and sexual. Using a multiplicity of materials, from ice and blood to glass, marble or lead, Quinn develops these paradoxes into experimental, conceptual works, mostly figurative in form.
Quinn’s work often deals with the distanced relationship we have with our bodies, highlighting how the conflict between the ‘natural’ and ‘cultural’ grips the contemporary psyche. In 1999, Quinn began a series of marble sculptures of amputees to review the aspirations of Greek and Roman statuary and their depictions of an idealised whole. Quinn’s enlarged sculpture of Alison Lapper, a woman born without arms, when she was heavily pregnant, formed a major piece of public art for Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth.
