Other Criteria are pleased to unveil five new psalm prints, also available in glitter, at Art Miami Booth C9, on the 1st of December at 5.30pm EST.
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.
These new psalms will be exhibited in our London, Ilfracombe and New York stores from the 2nd December.

This winter, the Serpentine presents an exhibition by Michael Craig-Martin, one of the best-known British artists of his generation. This is the first solo show of Craig-Martin’s work in a London public institution since 1989.

This exhibition by Michael Craig-Martin will bring together works from 1981 to 2015, including his era-defining representations of once familiar yet obsolete technology; laptops, games consoles, black-and-white televisions and incandescent lightbulbs that highlight the increasing transience of technological innovation. The exhibition will also feature new wallpaper that has been conceived especially for the exhibition.
From the earliest work in the show, a wall drawing first produced in 1981 (the same year that the first personal computer was made available), to a painting from 2014 that depicts the minimal lines of an iPhone, Craig-Martin’s work has recorded the profound impact that electronic technology has had on the way we consume and communicate. The exhibition explores the seismic shift from analogue processes to digital technologies that informed the production and distribution of new kinds of objects in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
Craig-Martin's early works explored the conceptual possibilities of contemporary art, testing the boundaries between functional and functionless forms. The introduction of digital technology in recent years has resulted in the breakdown of the relationship between form and function, a process that Craig-Martin captures in his depictions of successive inventions, from the battery to the cassette to the laptop.
Craig-Martin has participated in a number of Serpentine events and group exhibitions: Memory Marathon (2012); Map Marathon (2011), Wall to Wall (1994), Here and Now: Twenty-three years of the Serpentine Gallery (1993); Objects for the Ideal Home: The Legacy of Pop Art (1991); Vessel: Sculpture, Glass, Ceramics (1987); Summer Show 5 (1976, as selector) and Art as Thought Process (1974). He also produced a new map, linking the Serpentine’s two buildings, to celebrate the opening of the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in 2013.

The Humble Hanger, Rachel Howard & True Rocks, 18 Carat Gold Pendant
Rachel Howard says ‘The Humble Hanger is a celebration of the overlooked and commonplace, its function is taken for granted whereas here The Humble Hanger is honouring the workaday, elevated to something more grand. The simplicity of the wire hanger is beautiful; a few bends and a couple of twists. The Humble Hanger is also an object that eludes to the human body, eliciting perhaps loss, absence and love.’
