“This is not a portrait of a person, it’s a portrait of an image twisted by our collective desires.” – Marc Quinn. Quinn’s iconic 1996 sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss depicts her unearthly beauty, but shows her limbs contorted in an extreme yoga pose, a reflection on the distortions of global media. Derived from his original sculpture of the model, Quinn’s two intricately detailed screenprints use 12 colours and a silkscreen glaze to portray a three-dimensional image of the sculpture, each print hand finished in a choice of gold or silver leaf.
