In the Valley with Nathaniel Mary Quinn

By Eunice Chan

June 14, 2021

Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s “In the Valley” is on view at Almine Rech in Aspen, CO, through June 20. In the solo exhibition, Quinn unfolds his pictorial world that merges Cubism, Surrealism, and more, with his fractured portraits on paper and linen.

Known for his depiction of figures through fragmentation, the artist’s work is often associated with papier collé used by masters like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Quinn’s paintings, however, go beyond drawing external elements to create a heterogeneous imagery.

“When facing a painting by Quinn, we behold a nascent, complex, and diverse homogeneity,” writes Théo de Luca from the Department of History of Art at Yale University. “Quinn’s paintings nonetheless hints at something deeper: painting’s enduring network of relationships between the parts and the whole.”

The complexity of human emotion is captured by Quinn through the clever juxtaposition of the beautiful and the grotesque, both individual and representative of the human condition.
