Marc Quinn: Frozen Waves, Broken Sublimes

There are some impressive installations across London at the moment. I love these huge stainless-steel sea shells which have washed up on the shores of the Fountain court of Somerset House. 

They are the work of artist Marc Quinn, and were recently shown at White Cube Bermondsey as part of his The Toxic Sublime exhibition.

The contrast between the unpolished and highly polished reflective surfaces are lovely, and their monumental scale works well in the setting of the courtyard of Somerset House.
