Nathaniel Mary Quinn: Hollow and Cut

Gagosian / New York / Art

Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s painting style features fractured faces. While his work appears as collage, all of the pieces are paintings—a mixture of oil, charcoal, gouache, and oil stick that achieves a kaleidoscopic effect when the whole canvas is finished and the work is revealed in its entirety. In a way, it’s a bit like a glorious version of “exquisite corpse,” the Surrealist parlor game. The waiting list for the 42-year-old painter’s work has only grown, with Carmelo Anthony, Elton John, and Ari Emanuel among the collectors. No wonder Larry Gagosian lured him to his fold. —Michael Hainey
