Ged Quinn in conversation with Marquard Smith is part of a programme of speakers, residencies and panels organised to explore this year's theme. In the meticulously executed paintings of Ged Quinn, a complex and challenging form of ‘ruin' can be seen to take hold. Under the artist's hand, the pastoral landscape and the domestic still life are transformed from the familiar to the fantastic. Drawing together a raucous collage of elements from Western cultural history, mythology, philosophy and the imagination, Quinn challenges and plays with preconceived notions of beauty and art.
