Fenbufen from “40 Woodcut Spots"

2011

$6,000

About

Artist: Damien Hirst Title: Fenbufen from “40 Woodcut Spots" Year: 2011 Medium: Woodcut on 410gsm Somerset White Paper Edition: 55; signed (recto) and numbered (verso) in pencil Sheet: 18 x 18 inches (45.8 x 45.8 cm) Condition: Mint This print is associated with Damien Hirst’s iconic “Pharmaceutical” series, comprising grids of brightly colored dots that explore the interaction between pure colors. Hirst's titles refer to chemical compounds used in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, drawn from the company Sigma-Aldrich’s catalogue “Biochemicals for Research and Diagnostic Reagents.” Using several different mediums and formats throughout the series, Hirst considers the creative variations possible within a rigid, predetermined compositional system, applying the exacting logic of science to art making.

About Damien Hirst (Artist)

British artist Damien Hirst is widely considered the enfant terrible of contemporary art. He is the most prominent of the so-called Young British Artists, or YBAs, a group, largely composed of Hirst’s classmates at Goldsmiths, in London, that began exhibiting together in warehouses and factories after 1988 and is known for the use of unconventional materials and “shock tactics.”


     In the 1990s, Hirst said, “I can’t wait to get into a position to make really bad art and get away with it.” And indeed, he is notorious for piquing critics and baffling the public with such pieces as his signature glass vitrines containing dead sheep or sharks in formaldehyde, and his diamond-encrusted skull, For the Love of God.


     Working primarily in sculpture, Hirst takes after French modernist master Marcel Duchamp in his use of ready-made objects and materials, which he combines to ironic effect. He often creates in series, as with The Cure (Violet) and The Cure (Turquoise), both from 2014, which are among several pill paintings referencing Andy Warhol’s embrace of mass production. Belonging to his ongoing series of “spot” paintings, begun in the 1980s, the 2005 piece Xylene Cyanol Dye Solution is striking for its machinelike, industrial uniformity and almost childlike simplicity, a seeming rebuke to the idea of the artist-as-genius.


     In addition to making art, Hirst has launched stores that sell editioned works (Other Criteria), a restaurant (Pharmacy2) and even his own London museum (Newport Street Gallery).
