“Orchids are like perfectly evolved little sculptures … 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.” For his flower series, Quinn assembles an installation of blooms, selecting from different continents a wide range of species that would in fact never flower at the same time. The installations are photographed and subsequently digitally reworked by the artist before printing, intentionally accentuating the voluptuous, sensual quality of the plants and flowers. Quinn captures these species at their peak of perfection, rescuing them from natural decay to create a moment of timeless beauty.
