Saxon Quinn is an Australian multimedia artist working primarily with graphite, paint, and canvas to create sensory constellations of inhibition. From his home in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Quinn paints minimal scenes composed of doodles, ideas, and phrases.
Inspired by the gritty folk of New York City, his graphics career, and a creative childhood, the paintings take on the texture of a weathered building or the underside of a school desk. Each painting is objectively a void scattered with seemingly disassociated fragments. However, when ingested holistically, each fragment tells a piece of a complicated story; a collection of motifs for the great narrative of life.
Intermingled with humour and experimentation, his work recalls a childhood of watching his mother paint, drawing for the first time and accidentally defacing his mothers work. Quinn has recently exhibited in Toronto, NYC, LA, Spain, and across Australia.
