Winter World Orchid Bronze Sculpture by Marc Quinn

In stock

Contemporary artist Marc Quinn is currently debuting his new works alongside existing pieces at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery and around the Gardens at Kew.

Light into life explores the links between nature and humanity, and this exhibition brings that complex relationship to life. Quinn has been working in close collaboration with Kew scientists and horticulturists to explore more about plants and their incredible forms and shapes, using significant plants from across our collections to inspire his work.

We are delighted to present our customers with the exclusive chance to acquire a limited edition art piece, personally signed by the artist.


About the artwork

This edition stems from Quinn's ongoing studies related to transgenic plant-life, flowers and fruits. His 2008 flower sculpture series ‘The Nurseries of El Dorado’ consisted of an exotic array of plants cast in bronze, which bore the flowers, fruits and vegetables from far off climates and eco systems, hybridising them into one magical species. Winter World stands alone, an orchid cast in bronze and painted with white glossy paint, as if it grew in a climate far removed from where it belongs.

In the frozen flower sculptures Quinn captures what he has described as “the purest and most magical transformation of reality into art”. In these sculptures, real flowers in a perfect state of bloom have been plunged into frozen silicone oil. As the flowers freeze they die, but in doing so, they become a perfect, eternal image of themselves.
