Gold tears - Inkjet print on paper.
This is part of the "Utopia"  series and together with other Hirst's prints forms a theme for Hirst's ongoing exploration of the role of science and religion in human life. The works from "Utopia" series represent human pursuit of the ideal and expose the intrinsic flaws of the nature of this pursuit.
This work depicts rows of shiny diamonds on golden foil covered shelves in front of a golden-beige background, making the image of a blazing vision of golden light, a symbol for the glorious eternity diamonds are so often associated with. But as always in Hirst’s art, the ambiguity is obvious. As much as diamonds stand both for eternity and for a melancholic realization that loss is always a part of eternity, Hirst’s artwork points to the fact that behind all the shiny glittery surfaces there might be nothing, no meaning and no soul. And hence all eternity is less a promise rather than a condemnation.
