Lot Essay

The artist has commented "I sign the back of each work "Nathaniel Mary Quinn. Love Mom. Jesus," and three hearts: a heart for me, a heart for my mom, and a heart for God. Every painting I make is dedicated to the memory of my mother. And now everybody has to say her name." Quoted in an interview with Anderson Cooper in Gagosian Quarterly, Fall 2019, p. 48
