On 2nd May 2014, Stephen Friedman Gallery will be delighted to present Ged Quinn's second ever solo exhibition at the London art gallery
. Featuring new paintings across both the galleries spaces on Old Burlington Street, Mayfair, the show is said to offer plenty of new insights into this fantastic artist's practice and it will follow on from his other major solo exhibition at New Art Gallery Walsall.
The artists new work has been inspired by many things but most of the major twentieth-century auteur Pier Paolo Pasolini's unmade film ’San Paolo’ in the ‘Trilogy of Death’ series. This film was due to carry on from 'Salo' which was made in 1975 and is a highly controversial work of its time which was later hailed by critics.
The Director was sadly murdered shortly before the film was realised, which makes it a very fitting subject for Quinn, who is an artist intrigued by historical revisionism. Quinn will also present some explorations into abstraction for the first time in a bold series of new paintings.
Running in conjunction with the exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery
, Quinn also features in a large scale two-person exhibition at Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague, Czech Republic, alongside the Russian Conceptual artist Viktor Pivovarov.
