Damien Hirst Collection
A New variation of one of the Hirst's signature motifs - the butterfly. Butterflies symbolize regeneration, fortune and freedom in a world characterized by a materialistic consumerism that despite all glorification of money and what it can buy always longs for a deeper meaning behind the surfaces – and which yet can never truly get behind those surfaces; longing for spirituality and transcendence and yet always doomed to accept that there might be nothing behind the polished images. As a meticulous collector, here he juxtaposes the colorful insect against a contrasting black background. Better than any other motif, the butterfly encapsulates all the existential notions that Damien Hirst has called into question for so many years, minimizing the boundaries between life and death, eternity and the ephemeral and beauty and ugliness.
Butterflies became one of the most important themes in Hirst's art, thus significantly contributing to his oeuvre. By drawing towards the symbolism of the butterfly, Hirst is aSkin to artists from the ancient Egypt and Renaissance, who also were mesmerized by these insects. The image of the butterfly is so powerful and is ever-present in the human consciousness.
