More details

I've just done a series of paintings of people's irises ...You get an image that is at once incredibly colourful and abstract in a way, but also a complete signifier of identity in the way that DNA is, because an iris doesn't change. You can scan your iris to get into the country now. In the middle you have this black hole, which to me signifies the void and mystery of life. - Marc Quinn continues to explore the theme of nature mediated through human intervention. Science, philosophy, and evolution converge in a time where an individual iris can encompass the world and the world can be seen in one person’s iris.
