About the Artwork

Marc Quinn’s series of flower prints demonstrate his obsession with beauty and death. 
Like a dreamlike garden, flowers from all over the world together with fruits are frozen in ice for all eternity.

"It’s like the last judgement of the vegetable world."

Marc Quinn

Cryogenized in a stainless steel room at a temperature of -20° C at the moment of taking the shot, the frozen flowers and fruits are preserved with the aid of silicon oil. “It’s like the last judgement of the vegetable world” confided the artist in an interview, “a kind of romanticism seeking to halt time”. In the style of the classical vanitas paintings, Marc Quinn’s flowers are dead but have never been so beautiful.

About the printing Technique

Weng Contemporary Pigment

The term "pigment print" is used generally for any type of printed image that uses strictly pigments. Pigments can be either on a mineral basis or they can be an artificial product. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing.
