Statement

Ged Quinn, an English artist, studied at the Ruskin in Oxford, the Slade School of Art in London, the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, and theRijksakademie in Amsterdam.  Quinn makes paintings that appear at first sight to re-visit artificial locations from the tradition of European landscape and other genres. Using the methods of seduction and deflection as a visual and conceptual strategy, these works interweave contemporary themes and become extravagant environments for Quinn’s own imagery and ideas. By referencing and then distorting recognisable sources within European art history they present viewers with apparently collective memories unsettled by his own observations.

Quinn was also the keyboard player in the Liverpool group The Wild Swans (band). He was one of the three original core members, along with Paul Simpson and Jeremy Kelly, and played on their Zoo Records 12" single The Revolutionary Spirit/God Forbid released in 1982.
