Quinn Gray Strikes Deal in Fake Kidnapping Plot

This life-sized sculpture is based on an image the artist saw on Instagram of local resident Jen Reid standing on the vacant plinth with her fist raised in a Black Power salute, a spontaneous moment following a Black Lives Matter protest in June 2020.

  • This sculpture is about making a stand for my mother, for my daughter, for Black people like me.

  • Prejudice, such as racism, is part of that.

  • My first, instant thought was how incredible it would be to make a sculpture of her, in that instant.

Cast in black resin, this new sculpture A Surge of Power Jen Reid 2020 takes its place.

  • My immediate thoughts were for the enslaved people who died at the hands of Colston and to give them power.

  • I contacted Jen via social media to discuss the idea of the sculpture and she told me she wanted to collaborate.

  • Like my History Paintings which I have been making over the last decade, which started with an image from the London riots following the death of Mark Duggan.
