New prints by Damien Hirst

October 27, 2015 by Mary


Other Criteria are pleased to unveil Beneficence and Miracle, Damien Hirst's new prints. The prints will be available online and in-store from Wednesday 28th October between 1-2pm GMT (9-10am EST).

The first ‘Kaleidoscope’ painting, ‘It’s a Wonderful World’, was created in 2001. Originally inspired by a Victorian tea tray found by Hirst. The ‘Kaleidoscope’ paintings reference the spiritual symbolism of the butterfly, used by the Greeks to depict Psyche, the soul, and in Christian imagery to signify the resurrection.

Hirst began using butterflies in his work as early as 1989. Describing the insect as a 'universal trigger', he has explained: "Everyone’s frightened of glass, everyone’s frightened of sharks, everyone loves butterflies."
