Photos: Pre-Frieze brunch to celebrate new editions by Damien Hirst

October 12, 2016 by Mary

We would like to thank All who attended our Pre-Frieze Brunch, last Wednesday 5th October, celebrating new sculpture editions by Damien Hirst: Myth and Legend.

Damen Hirst’s Myth and Legend – a unicorn and a winged horse – recreate the artist’s bronze sculptures of the same titles, in porcelain. An anatomical cross-section of the creatures reveals the flesh and musculature of a horse beneath the skin. Handcrafted by the renowned Nymphenburg Porcelain Makers in Munich, these editions continue Hirst’s examination of the areas of intersection between science, religion and belief. He explains: “In a way, science brings religion down to earth and to cut open mythical creatures and expose them as no different to mortal horses is somehow still magical. It’s kind of like exploding a myth to make it real. I like the way that even by showing these creatures’ insides they still feel majestic and hopeful, so they seem more real and not just creatures from fantasy. Maybe they can even help us in the real world.”

Our reception at Other Criteria’s Newport Street location – catered by Pharmacy 2 restaurant – was followed by the opportunity to explore the current Jeff Koons exhibition at Damien Hirst’s gallery.

VIDEO: The Folly Acres Cook Book launch at Other Criteria New York

The Complete Psalm Paintings by Damien Hirst

May 12, 2015 by Mary

In 2008, Damien Hirst created a series of one hundred and fifty paintings, each titled after an Old Testament psalm, and made from butterfly wings and household gloss paint on canvas. The ‘Psalms’, in which iridescent butterfly wings combine to form kaleidoscopic patterns reminiscent of Gothic stained glass windows or Buddhist mandalas, were conceived nearly twenty years after the artist’s first use of the insect. Now one of his most recognisable motifs, the butterfly is here used to address some of Hirst’s most enduring themes: beauty, art, belief, life and death.

This stunning publication provides a comprehensive survey of the series. Each of the fully illustrated paintings is accompanied by the psalm from which its title derives, the biblical text rendered on images of individually selected colour marble samples. With the addition of a complete list of works and essays by writers Michael Bracewell and Amie Corry that investigate the historical and conceptual background to the works, ‘The Complete Psalm Paintings’ is an exquisite companion to one of Hirst’s most beautiful series.

Other Criteria are pleased to invite you to celebrate the launch of The Complete Psalm Paintings book by Damien Hirst, Friday 15th May, 4-7pm, 458 Broome Street, New York City.

The Complete Psalm Paintings book and several Psalm prints by Damien Hirst are available at all Other Criteria stores and on the website.
