‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ a solo exhibition by Steve Quinn at the Curious Duke Gallery

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Curious Duke Gallery is proud to announce the apocalyptic new exhibition of collage artist, Steven Quinn, runs until April 1st 2017. ‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ is one of the most politically and culturally relevant exhibitions you can visit in London at the moment. Combining cut-outs from old magazines and historic imagery, Quinn creates ominous collage narratives in which the threat of nuclear destruction and intergalactic conflict loom large.

Against these expansive, portentous backdrops are juxtaposed scenes of mundane domesticity taken from vintage magazines: a figure sunbathing in front of an ominous, expanding sun; a 50’s housewife preparing dinner as a mushroom cloud blooms in the distance.

The result is a beguiling melting pot of ideas, that’s at once thought-provoking, visually arresting, and seeped in dark humour.

“Recently, immigration, Trump, and privacy have been themes which have influenced me a lot. Most of the time I buy old books and magazines, then spend time breaking and cutting them up roughly, sorting them into subject matter. For me the paper quality is better with old magazines. If you’re lucky, you can score some really old 40’s magazines that have been screen printed.”

Steve Quinn, 2017
