About the Item

Damien Hirst Butterfly Heart (Small) H7-4, 2020 Laminated Giclée print on aluminium composite panel in original publisher's packaging Signed by Damien Hirst & numbered 1483/3510 on the reverse 13 4/5 × 14 3/5 × 1 1/2 inches Unframed Digitally signed by Damien Hirst & numbered 1483/3510 on the reverse Excellent condition; in original packaging. In Damien Hirst’s ‘Butterfly Heart (Small)’ he combines the rainbow, a symbol of support for the NHS in Britain throughout the pandemic, with butterflies, one of Hirst’s best‐known motifs. In May 2020, Damien Hirst released his vibrant ‘Butterfly Heart’, one of four limited edition rainbow prints produced during the COVID‐19 pandemic. With all of the profits of its sale donated to The Felix Project, the print was released within a fixed time frame for purchase. As such, the number of editions ordered determined the final size of the edition. ‘Butterfly Heart’ combines the rainbow, a symbol of support of the NHS (National Health Service) in Britain throughout the pandemic, with butterflies, one of Hirst’s best‐known motifs. This laminated giclée print on aluminium composite panel is digitally composed of photographed butterfly wings assembled into bands of colour, their puzzle‐like compositions recollective of his ‘Kaleidoscope’ works. Ranging from the yellow wings that nearly fade into the background to the bold blue wings rendered with practically scientific detail, Hirst’s perennial love for butterflies and attention to their multitudinous forms is distinctly present. Hirst’s ‘Butterfly Heart’ is both a standout contribution to his oeuvre of butterfly works and an emotive tribute to those who have sacrificed much to help the country through the COVID‐19 pandemic. ‘I want to pay tribute to them with this rainbow heart, a symbol of solidarity and hope’. Provenance Acquired from the publisher More about Damien Hirst: The Turner prize winner and epicenter of the YBA movement. Hirst's emblematic art of our era revolutionizes the art market. Hirst is widely regarded as one of the most important artists working today, creating truly iconic artworks. A genuine star of the Young British Artists (YBA) movement, Damien Hirst has always made a point of mixing up different media. Whether as a sculptor, an installation artist, a painter, or a printmaker, Hirst has produced many of the most spectacular and widely discussed works in recent years and helped to revolutionize the art market. Damien Hirst’s, For the Love of God, the diamond-encrusted replica of the skull of a thirty-five-year-old man from the thirteenth century, broke all records to become the most expensive contemporary artwork in the world. Damien Hirst´s artworks are truly emblematic icons of our era, with their recurring motives such as dots, butterflies, cows, sharks, skulls, pills, and pharmacy cabinets. His works, captivating and intense as they are, challenge our stereotyped concepts and beliefs. Damien Hirst’s shark, suspended in formaldehyde, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), is widely recognized, as are his real butterflies suspended in paint or thousands of butterfly wings arranged in a mandala-like pattern – the famous Damien Hirst butterfly paintings. Since 1986 he has been producing the Spot paintings (sometimes called Dot Paintings), a series of paintings with evocative pharmacological titles, which display lines of colored spots. Damien Hirst´s Spot paintings and his Spin paintings became iconic series. Inspired by such diverse themes as life, death, art, science, and medicine, Damien Hirst’s art takes a direct and challenging approach to ideas about existence. The energy and inventiveness are also to be found in Damien Hirst's prints, which continue to stir controversy within the viewer with the same intensity.

  • Taera Bretland - Blaeu British Isles
    By Kristjana Williams
    Located in New York, NY
    Kristjana S Williams Taera Bretland - Blaeu British Isles, 2021 Giclée on Matt Smooth Fine Art Cotton 300 gsm paper Boldly signed and dated on the lower right front and pencil numbered on the lower left front by the artist 18 × 25 inches Unframed Hand signed and numbered 95/275 Story behind the artwork: A celebration of life on the British Isles, ‘Taera Bretland’ translates as ‘Clear Britain’, the islands of Great Britain here sitting in a crystal clear sea. This stunning map based artwork reveals fascinating details in every corner, but not necessarily where you might expect them… An aqua glow from the surrounding ocean lifts the land closer, whispering of its treasured secrets and cherished achievements. Here, the snaking Thames weaves its way not just through the capital, but across the whole country, connecting counties and unifying these Great British Isles, feeding colour popping flora and fauna along its path. Iconic and beloved landmarks rise like beacons, marking the steady flow of irrepressible revolution and impressive invention. In the spotlight, Murdoch’s ill-fated Titanic, Wren’s triumphant St Paul’s and Davy’s revolutionary lamp, rubbing noses with literary pioneers Dickens, Austen and Golding, and British icons Churchill and Chaplin. A bejewelled Ostrich, former resident at the Tower, stands haughtily atop the Truman Brewery; a regal stag, dapper in thimble hat and coiled suit of measuring tape, heads towards Saville Row’s Golden Mile; the subtropical splendour of Tresco Abbey has left its island home to perch in the Scottish Isles and The White Chapel Gallery, sits proudly, testament to Britain’s ‘New Generation’ post war art. A teasing glimpse of the continent affirms Great Britain's close ties with its European neighbours; an early Breeches Buoy rescue device symbolises unity in the face of threat and danger. About Kristjana S. Williams: Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins, and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of 'Beyond the Valley', a position she held for eight years. In 2011 she began creating fine art pieces as well as illustrating books and designing interior items. Her designs are inspired by nature, and her technique involves digitally and physically layering nature upon nature to mirror the symmetry that exists in all living things. Each piece is its own magical universe of exotic botanicals and vibrant animals. Described by the New York Times as part of the ‘new antiquarian movement’, Kristjana’s three dimensional original work, Limited Edition prints and interior products feature Victorian engravings, which the artist has blended with verdant and exotic flora and fauna to stunning effect. Animals and insects are intertwined with lavish foliage, layered over ancient shipping maps...
