About the Artist

File 167001

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Saxon Quinn's work takes a cue from the sprawling asphalt streetscapes found in cities. Inspired by his travels to New York City and other bustling metropolises, his explorations use the medium of cement plaster as a literal elucidation of the experienced environment. He distresses the surface, a nod to the weathering effect of pedestrian's footsteps over time, and creates urban narratives through his line-work, monolithic shapes and geometric marks.
