About the Work

Sphinx is an intricately detailed silkscreen print of his 1996 iconic sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss. The work depicts her unearthly beauty, but shows her limbs contorted in an extreme yoga pose. One theory is that this is a reflection on the distortions made by global media.

The print is hand finished in a choice of gold and silver leaf. Twelve colours, including a silk-screen glaze, were used to produce the screenprinted image

'This is not a portrait of a person, it's a portrait of an image twisted by our collective desires' - Marc Quinn
