Getto Shows Art by Jarret Quinn

by our Editors in Scene , 16 mei 2014

Getto, the place with an attitude free zone for gays, lesbians, queers and straights in Amsterdam’s Warmoesstraat, currently shows works by Jarret Quinn, who was born in Calgary, Canada, but is a resident of Amsterdam since January 2013.

His interest in coming to Amsterdam is to use the city as a base to explore and expand his artistry. Amsterdam allows him access to the many rich galleries of Europe that are not easily accessible from Canada.

Quinn studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in glass. After graduating he returned to painting and photography in addition to glass as his main artistic mediums.

Quinn’s art is poetic and conceptual, luring the viewers around in circles and drawing them in. He uses bold lines and colors. In some pieces this creates structure, while in others this results in fluid abstract images. His use of color conveys his sense of honesty, while at the same time giving shape and dimension in his images.

The artist states about his work: “My art is about being visible. It is about self-acceptance and the power to express it. It is about growing up, living life, losing true love, hitting rock bottom, and the ability to overcome the obstacles. Life is black and white and very uncertain, but my artwork is a strange arrangement of color which brings balance to the chaos.”


Jarret Quinn’s works are on show till June 16, 2014.
