MARC QUINN FLORALS


Under the Volcano, Acavar Bolivia, 2010


New Mexico Water, 2010


First Cataract of the Nile, 2010

Marc Quinn (b. 1964) is part of the YBAs (Young British Artists), a group that includes Liam Gillick, Damien Hirst, and Tracey Emin, among others.  Much of his work is larger-than-life, and deals with themes of nature, the body, and our relationship to both.

One way that Quinn explores these themes is through "genetic modification and hybridism"; in other words, using flowers as a stand in for human life.  In one of his series, he created stunning horticultural displays of frozen flowers which are able to escape decay through an electrical power source.  Similarly, in "Eternal Spring", Quinn preserves flowers indefinitely by soaking them in silicone.  The paintings depicted here are eerily pristine, capturing an otherworldly perfection and simultaneously bringing to mind the constant decay that surrounds us.

  3. One trend that I believe will shape the economy is the growth of income inequality between the rich and poor in nearly every country across the globe. Due to factors such as globalization and outsourcing, commoditizing unskilled and semi-skilled labor, the use of modern technology to facilitate entrepreneurship and execute ideas of the creative class, and the regressive effects of inflation the United States has reached its highest replica watches level of income inequality since the gilded age of the 1870's. This trend has also extended across the globe into Europe and emerging rolex replica economies such as China, Brazil and Russia. This has lead to a boom in demand for luxury goods across Asia and Latin America that more than compensate for slowing chanel replica sales in the West. I think that the luxury goods sector will be one of the winners throughout the next decade as more people reach the upper classes replica handbags of society not only in emerging economies, but in the West as well. The company carries products replica handbags minted in its own brand along with third party jewelry. Investors are cautious towards rising gold and silver prices eroding margins for its jewelry. However, I believe lv replica that Tiffany can win if the prices of precious metals move either way. Since it targets a higher gucci replica end market that is less price sensitive, Tiffany's can raise prices to match the appreciation or gold and silver. If prices go down, Tiffany wins from increased replica louis vuitton margins. Financially, the company is in solid shape with a debt/equity ratio of 0.3, a return on investment of 12%, and chanel replica expected growth of 15% per year over the next five years.
