A limited-edition run of 75 digital prints of Marc Quinn's iconic Kate Moss sculpture has been signed, titled and numbered by the artist himself as part of Wallpaper* Handmade 2013. It was printed with silkscreen glaze and diamond dust by Quinn, art publishers Manifold Editions and Brad Faine of leading printmakers Coriander Studio. Quinn chose the digital print process because it accentuates the colours and shades of the image, while the diamond dust provides an amazing contrast.
Marc Quinn's best-known works, such as his head sculpted in his own blood and the sculpture of Alison Lapper, examine the body's physical and cultural interpretations. This image of Kate Moss, with her limbs contorted in a yoga pose, is a reflection on the distortions of global media. It is not a portrait of a person, he says, but 'a portrait of an image twisted by our collective desires'. www.marcquinn.com
