New Representation

Nathaniel Mary Quinn

Gagosian is pleased to announce the representation of Nathaniel Mary Quinn. Collecting imagery that he tears, cuts, and overlaps on the walls of his studio, Quinn uses oil paint, charcoal, gouache, oil stick, and pastels to render facial features and details from sources both personal and found, covering parts of the canvas as he goes. Fragments of images taken from online searches, fashion magazines, and family photographs come together to form hybrid faces and figures that are at once neo-Dada and adamantly realist, evoking the intimacy and intensity of a face-to-face encounter with an alien other. By adapting the medium of collage and translating it into cohesive two-dimensionality, Quinn suggests that multiplicity is a perennial rather than fleeting state.
