“This painting is from my series Family Ties. I grew up in a home filled with art, my mother was and still is a working artist and my late father was a designer. For me to be painting and creating works feels like I'm coming home in a sense. I always knew I would paint, and my work is somewhat of a 'thank you' letter to my mum.” — Saxon Quinn
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.
