Damien Hirst, ‘Psalm: Judica, Domino’, 2016, Galerie d'Orsay

In excellent condition, with bright, fresh colors, printed on a full sheet. A superb impression of the definitive state, from the edition of 25, numbered in black marker lower left.

Hirst’s Psalm prints draw directly from the butterfly collages of his larger gloss paintings. With the butterfly wings separated and ordered in a mandala-like pattern, their arrangement mimics the precision of a collector’s display. Also calling to mind the exquisite stained glass of Europe’s great cathedrals, the wings of these creatures unite the celestial and the earthly to present us with the possibility of beauty in death.

Signature: Hand-signed in black marker lower right Damien Hirst. Bearing the artist’s circular stamp in black ink verso.

About Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst first came to public attention in London in 1988 when he conceived and curated "Freeze," an exhibition in a disused warehouse that showed his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College. In the nearly quarter of a century since that pivotal show (which would come to define the Young British Artists), Hirst has become one of the most influential artists of his generation. His groundbreaking works include The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), a shark in formaldehyde; Mother and Child Divided (1993) a four-part sculpture of a bisected cow and calf; and For the Love of God (2007), a human skull studded with 8,601 diamonds. In addition to his installations and sculptures, Hirst’s Spot paintings and Butterfly paintings have become universally recognized.
