Quinn's orchid prints explore two persisting leitmotifs of his work – beauty and death. They investigate beauty as it manifests itself in the natural world through flowers, and how it is mediated through human intervention. For his flower pieces, Quinn assembles an installation of blooms, selecting from different continents a wide range of species that would in fact never flower at the same time. The installations are photographed and subsequently digitally reworked by the artist before printing, intentionally accentuating the voluptuous, sensual quality of the plants and flowers. Quinn captures these species at their peak of perfection, rescuing them from natural decay to create a moment of timeless beauty. He intentionally accentuates the voluptuous nature of the plants and flowers. 'Orchids are like perfectly evolved little sculptures in themselves; they're full of colour, interesting shapes and beauty. Even though they are a plant's reproductive organs, they pun on human ones too. They make you realise it is colour, life and sexuality that keeps the world turning'. – Marc Quinn.
