Description

Hirst loves butterflies because even when they are dead they look alive. This feeling of immortality is intensified by the foil block technique in these works which flicker with life in the light. Hirst has stated he likes to use universal triggers, “everyone's frightened of glass, everyone's frightened of sharks, everyone loves butterflies”.

Damien Hirst erupted onto the international art scene in the late 1980s. He has captivated audiences ever since with artworks that explore beauty, love, faith, desire, death, science and religion. From sharks and cows preserved in tanks of formaldehyde to diamond-encrusted platinum skulls, his works challenge contemporary belief systems, tracing the uncertainties that lie at the heart of the human experience. Hirst won the Turner Prize in 1995 and remains one of contemporary art’s greatest provocateurs, continually coming up with new ways to compel and excite audiences.
