Conceptual Artist

Quin de la Mer

Artist Statement

During this last year, as the Covid-19 pandemic surged and lockdown made isolation part of daily life, I made the transition from trying to figure out this human collective consciousness that so disturbs me, to making autobiographical work of my unique perceptions including the intolerable emotions I feel in response to the formations that arise out of collective agreements (aka “hive mentality”).

My ideas typically marry philosophical notions with conceptual art, often crossing media boundaries to include fresco painting, text-as-medium, alternative photographic processes, digital art, and moving image art. Inventing new methodologies and techniques is a regular part of my process.
