Artist, born and lived in London, who graduated from Cambridge University and was assistant to the sculptor Barry Flanagan. Group exhibitions included Hands, at Grob Gallery, 1991; London, at Karsten Schubert Gallery, 1992; and in 1993 Young British Artists II, at Saatchi Gallery, which holds his work. What constitutes an individual or the life force? were the type of subjects which preoccupied Quinn, as in his Saatchi showing, where the 1991 sculpture Self constituted a head made from nine pints of the artist’s blood. Solo exhibitions included Bread Sculpture, Galerie Marquardt, Paris, and Middendorf Gallery, Washington, both 1990; Out of Time, Grob Gallery, 1991; a major one at South London Gallery, 1998; and drawings, paintings and sculpture at Tate Liverpool, 2002.
