Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst: No Sense Of Absolute CorruptionMay 4-June 21, 1996 Damien Hirst’s work traverses extremes fromfin de siecle decadence to classical beauty, from the visceral to the conceptual. His work is always a celebration of life and derives from the exigencies of our time: death, decay and disease – often presented within the cool formalism…

Individual suffering has been trivialized, although the presumed intent is empathy for the…

In this rendering of an indochinese tiger, silhouettes of historical figures and politicians emerge from the black stripes of the…
