Quinn’s two intricately detailed silkscreen prints of his 1996 iconic sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss depicts her unearthly beauty, but shows her limbs contorted in an extreme yoga pose, a reflection on the distortions of global media.Taking a three-dimensional image of the sculpture, and working directly with the artist, the print is hand finished in a choice of gold and silver leaf. 12 colours including a silk-screen glaze were used to produce the screenprinted image of the Sphinx.‘This is not a portrait of a person, it’s a portrait of an image twisted by our collective desires’ – Marc Quinn
