Marc Quinn presents his inaugural Timed Release, featuring two unique embellished Iris prints. A green human iris and a blue iris of a Balinese cat will be available to buy at an affordable price for 48 hours only, providing a unique opportunity for art enthusiasts to own exclusive works by the renowned artist. Both prints will be embellished by adding lines, giving a personalised and authentic touch to these limited editions.
Marc Quinn refers to the eyes as "the doors of perception, the portal between inner and outer, and the link between us and the world". The iris works are about individuality, irides are as singular as fingerprints.
"They are also one of the few external parts of the body which are highly coloured, or more correctly they are the only internal organ you can see from the outside, and the only one which has the strong vivid colours of the inside of the body, the strong reds, blues, greens, yellows and oranges. They are a leakage of the vivid interior world of the body to the monochrome world of the skin."
The focus of this Timed Release is its emphasis on affordability, offering collectors a chance to acquire a one-of-a-kind artwork by Marc Quinn. The project not only expands accessibility to Quinn's work but also underscores the artist's willingness to experiment with new formats and engage with a broader audience. As a unique and limited-time opportunity, this release provides collectors with a rare chance to own distinctive pieces from a celebrated contemporary artist.
