Modern Art: A Bloody Self-portrait By Marc Quinn

Dear Iloboyou, there are a lot of weird things that are considerate art, or human art who is the one that says this is art or this is not art?! I will present you with Modern Art: A Bloody Self-portrait By Marc Quinn. The blood art artist.

Google says that art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing artworks to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Self is the great blood sculptures of the great Marc Quinn. A self-portrait of the artist, but one that literally uses his body as material since the cast of Marc Quinn‘s head, immersed in frozen silicone, is created from ten pints of his own blood.

Does it sound like horror art?

In this way, the materiality of the controversial art sculptures has both a symbolic and real function.

The work was made at a time when Quinn was an alcoholic and a notion of dependency – of things needing to be plugged in or connected to something to survive – is apparent since the work needs electricity to retain its frozen appearance.

A further iteration made every five years, this modern art series of sculptures presents a cumulative index of passing time and an ongoing self-portrait of the artist’s ageing and changing self.
