About the Item

'Colour Chart' Aluminum Panel Silkscreen with Glitter, 2017 is signed and numbered by the Artist on verso. Published by HENI in 2017. Edition of 250 + 8AP, number #152 of edition. The glittering contemporary pop-art ‘Colour Chart’ by Damien Hirst is a study of “pinning down the joy of colour” - a concept that began in the 1980s with his iconic ‘Spot Series’ paintings that debuted as part of the YBA exhibition, 'Freeze'. Hirst remarked of the work, “The Colour Charts mean you get to kill two birds with one stone, or I do: I get to please myself with that joy of colour but then also it’s a found object, something I’ve found in the real world and reproduced.” The essence of pop art is finding the ordinary fascinating, like Marcel Duchamp's 'Fountain' or Andy Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup', Hirst has been able to tap into a new reality through the marvelous lens of pop art. The large-scale 'Colour Chart' is an impressive blue chip artwork, with it's grandeur in scale and contemporary subject, the work is instantly captivating. Brilliant hues of saturated color and modern pastels sparkle in the light as the densely covered sections of glitter translate sheer luxury, while simultaneously maintaining a sophisticated edge with a background of polished aluminum panel. The limited edition screenprint with glitter on UV brushed panel is one of two hundred and fifty created in 2017, with the number and signature by the Artist on verso. Damien Hirst has become recognized world-wide for his boundary pushing contemporary works of art which explore the beauty of everyday life and the 'Colour Chart' is the quintessential work of such an exploration, as it showcases the contemporary master's innate ability to see ordinary things differently. Arriving ready-to-install in a stunning custom made white satin frame, it is finished with museum caliber non-glare glass with hooks on reverse. This silkscreen and aluminum panel work measures 42.5 x 80.5 x 2 in. Damien Hirst is a British contemporary master artist and entrepreneur recognized for his iconic artworks that have defined the contemporary art world for over a decade. His varied practice, which includes installation, sculpture, painting, and drawing, explores the complex relationships between life, death, art, religion, and science. Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965 and grew up in Leeds, England. In 1984, he moved to London, where he worked in construction before enrolling at Goldsmiths University of London, in 1986 to study fine art. While at Goldsmiths, Hirst organized the independent student exhibition 'Freeze', which has become legendary as the originating moment of the Young British Artists (YBAs). 'Freeze', which exhibited Hirst’s first spot paintings, launched Hirst and 15 of his fellow students to fame, making their place in art history. In 1991, Charles Saatchi, offering to fund Hirst’s artwork, mounted the first Young British Artists (YBA) exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Among the works exhibited was 'The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living' (1991), a shark submerged in a formaldehyde vitrine, which became an overnight global sensation. As a result of the show, Hirst was nominated for that year's Turner Prize. Hirst later won the Turner Prize in 1995 for the work, 'Mother and Child Divided'. Known best for his use of symbols, the 'Universal Triggers' utilized throughout his career have instant relatability in connection with universal questions about life, death, love and everything in between. In an interview with Tate, he said “I like work that says one thing and then denies it at the same time. I don’t think there are answers I think there are only questions. I think it’s for viewers to decide what the answers are.” Hirst is well recognized for his spot paintings, medicine cabinet motifs, brightly colored spin paintings, kaleidoscopic butterflies, large-scale sculptural installations and diamond-encrusted skulls. Since 1987, there have been over 80 solo Damien Hirst exhibitions that have taken place worldwide from Tokyo to New York City and his work has been included in over 260 group shows. Damien Hirst works in a limitless way, crossing several different mediums and themes in his work and mastering all emotions. Damien Hirst's impact on the art world has had a similar effect to that of the contemporary masters before him, with similarities to be drawn from the monumental pop art work of Andy Warhol, the street-art sensation installation master Keith Haring, the expressive and vibrant paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, the psychological themes and clever symbolism explored in the work of Francis Bacon and innovative approach of Marcel Duchamp. Damien Hirst continues to work and create art in the present day, with his recent focus primarily on paintings.
