Ged Quinn

Worth catching before it closes on Wednesday - Ged Quinn at the Stephen Friedman Gallery. 

Ged Quinn creates stunning landscape paintings full of references from Claude Lorrain to Turner to Caspar Friedrich, with bizarre contemporary twists. These 18th century scenes appear to be populated by mutants, Hitler youth, monkeys and angels. Is it simply very clever pastiche, deploying stunning technique? I hope to have time to visit and find out.
