HIRST'S GOT BLING!
by Jamie E17
In conjunction with Damien Hirst’s exhibition ‘Beyond Belief’, currently on display at the White Cube, there are now eight new limited edition works.
These works include a series of silk screens depicting Hirst's extraordinary diamond skull 'For the Love of God', a life-size cast of a human skull in platinum, covered entirely by 8,601 VVS to flawless pave-set diamonds.
In addition to these silk screens there are three works on canvas, each with paracetamol pills and syringes. These relate closely to the new series of 'Fact' and 'Biopsy’ paintings, which focus upon issues surrounding Western medicine, and continue Hirst's long standing interest in the themes of life and death.
The exhibition will be on show until 7th July 2007.
