Ged Quinn is renowned for his epic and allegorical paintings, which use as source material art historical paintings by artists such as Claude Lorrain, Caspar David Friedrich and Jacob van Ruisdael.
Quinn’s paintings play with rich and varied references to historical, cultural and artistic issues and events from across and through time, creating rich, complex and multi-layered narratives.
This major solo exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall, 9 October 2013 – 5 January 2014, seeks to survey Quinn’s practice over the last four years and will include a brand new body of work, produced especially for the exhibition.
The exhibition testifies to the breadth of the artist’s practice, including landscapes, portraits and still lives, resplendent in references to history, myth and popular culture.
