Under the Volcano

Orchids regularly crop up in Marc Quinn’s work, allowing him to further explore themes of beauty and death. For Under the Volcano, Quinn brings together orchids from different continents that would never typically bloom at the same time, capturing them together in their prime.

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'.

Under the Volcano is from a limited edition of 150, signed on the front and numbered on the reverse by the artist.

    About the artist
    +

    One of the leading artists of his generation, Marc Quinn graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in History and History of Art before switching track to contemporary visual art in the 1990s. 

    Working across sculpture, painting, and drawing, Quinn incorporates a broad range of materials through both traditional and modern techniques. With his critical background, Quinn suffuses every work with a sense of the profound, tackling questions of the human condition through a contemplation of science and astrology. 

    Well-known artworks include the sculpture of the artist’s head, cast from his own frozen blood, and his depiction of the artist Alison Lapper on Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth in 2005. In 2001, Quinn also won The Royal Academy of Art’s Charles Wollaston Award for Catherine Long, a sculptural nude in white marble.
