Quinn Tivey


uv print on aluminum, sculpted
10 x 8 1/2 x 3 inches

Existing in the space between what is real and fake, and what is 2D and 3D, has proved to be fertile artistic ground for Quinn Tivey. Crumpled Paper 1 appears to be a sheet of paper curling off the wall, but is in fact an aluminum support for a printed image. The “image” itself appears to be the blue, yellow, and magenta inks used to print a photograph with a hint of an image behind. Here, they smear and separate into a painterly pattern, suggesting both a breakdown of the printing process and a transformation into something new, even beautiful. Tivey’s photo-based practice also extends into sculpture and installation, and his work has been exhibited throughout the US.
