Quin de la Mer

Artist Statement

Quin de la Mer is an artist whose work is tied to the unseen but often felt forces that exist beside us in time. Their influences are twofold: Intimately, they are deeply moved by the aesthetic emotions that arise while experiencing beauty, wonder, mystery, awe, and the sublime. On the global scale, they make work about the intolerable emotions they feel in response to the formations that arise out of collective agreements (aka “hive mentality” “group think”).  

Quin’s ideas typically marry philosophical notions with conceptual art often crossing media boundaries to include painting, installation, hybrid literary-visual work, alternative photography, digital art, sound art, and moving image art. Inventing new methodologies and techniques is a regular part of their process.
