At Frieze Art Fair London 2012, London-based Stephen Friedman Gallery presented a solo exhibition with paintings by British artist Ged Quinn, entitled Ghosts and Benedictions. On the Preview day we had the chance to speak with the artist about his work. In this video, Ged Quinn talks about the exhibition at Frieze Art Fair, a painting called Hegel’s Happy End, and his work in general.
Ged Quinn was born in 1963 in Liverpool, UK. The artist is known for his densely layered paintings, which transform art historical painting into contemporary experience. Ged Quinn is currently included in the group show Beyond Reality: British Painting Today at Galerie Rudolfinum, Prague, Czech Republic. In December 2012 he will have a solo exhibition entitled Endless Renaissance at the Bass Museum in Miami Beach.
