About

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by British artist Ged Quinn. This is the third show at the gallery for the Cornwall-based painter and comprises a new body of work in which Quinn creates a monodrama from the point of view of a wandering protagonist. Marking a significant development in the artist's practice, the exhibition pairs large scale romantic landscape paintings with smaller portraits and intimate pastoral scenes. Rendered in thinly applied layers of oil on linen, these wintry images evoke the feelings of the isolated wanderer.

Quinn's new paintings derive from the poetry of German lyric poet Wilhelm Muller, English Romantic poet William Wordsworth and Carl Jung's partially autobiographical book ‘Memories, Dreams, Reflections'. They also relate to a series of rare watercolours depicting landscapes by Albrecht Dürer.
