Ged Quinn's landscapes are full of enigmas, mythology, modernity, clues and contradictions. They are infused with the feeling of impeding violence, or its aftermath while at the same time inviting the viewer to join in the game of symbols and their juxtapositions. Somehow the first impression is that they remind me of H. Bosch more than classicists. Whether someone's cup of tea or not, the vast amount of work and mastery invested in these works gains my respect singlehandedly. My only worry was whether the games I felt invited to join in were not there at all, that these works take themselves too seriously. Even so, totally enjoyable. Not to be viewed in haste, and I will be looking forward to future works.
