“This body of work is about freeing myself when it comes to creating - allowing myself to work freely and be comfortable with each stroke, stribble, word and mark that lands on the canvas. Finding joy and pleasure in the imperfection.” — Saxon Quinn

About the Artist

File 167001

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Saxon Quinn's draws inspiration from his own state-of-mind and surroundings, whether that be personal hurdles or distractions, family, friends, the countryside or cityscapes. Inspired by his travels to New York City and other bustling metropolises, his explorations use distressed canvas as a literal elucidation of the experienced environment. He manipulates 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.
