Ged Quinn - Conceptual, skilful, and beautifully composed.

Ged Quinn specialises in allegorical paintings that include contemporary images (generally on controversial topics in Western cultural history) in idyllic scenes based on classical paintings such as the pastoral works of Claude Lorrain and Caspar David Friedrich  


I saw an exhibition of Ged Quinn’s work at the Wilkinson Gallery in 2008, titled ‘My Great Unhappiness Gives Me A Right To Your Benevolence’. Since then I see his work everywhere.   His work stands out, in the fact that you can appreciate his painterly skills as well as his concepts without having to read pages and pages of text to understand it.  They emanate a slightly sinister atmosphere but are also very inviting, making you want to understand them more deeply.  For me, I have to be engaged with the picture at first sight to want to learn more.
