Damien Hirst – Psalm – Domine, Ne In Furore

Damien Hirst, Psalm – Domine, Ne In Furore is an Original Silkscreen Print with glazes and diamond dust. Featuring Damien Hirst’s iconic butterfly kaleidoscope motif, also known as his butterfly stained glass windows. This print is signed and numbered from the edition of 50.

Since the late 1980’s, Hirst has used a varied practise of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing to explore the complex relationship between art, life and death. Explaining: “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else … there isn’t anything else,” Hirst’s work investigates and challenges contemporary belief systems, and dissects the tensions and uncertainties at the heart of human experience.

Since 1987, over 80 solo Damien Hirst exhibitions have taken place worldwide and his work has been included in over 260 group shows. Hirst’s first major retrospective ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ was held in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples in 2004. His contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades was recognised in 2012 with a major retrospective of his work staged at Tate Modern. Hirst lives and works in London, Gloucestershire and Devon.

Damien Hirst has received enormous praise as well as criticism of his art, particularly from the media and art critics. Hirst believes that the public is negatively influenced by the media, and develops preconceived opinions before viewing the art. By distancing themselves from the art, they are cheating themselves of the full experience. Damien Hirst says of his art “I hope that it makes people think about things that they take for granted. Like smoking, like sex, like love, like life, like advertising, like death… I want to make people frightened of what they know. I want to make them question.”

In April 2003, the Saatchi Gallery opened a Damien Hirst retrospective, bringing a developing strain in Saatchi’s relationship with Hirst to a head. Damien Hirst disassociated himself from the retrospective, angered that a Mini car that Hirst had decorated with the Hirst trademark spots for charity was being exhibited as a serious work of art. Damien Hirst bought back 12 works of art from Saatchi for a total of £8 million. Damien Hirst had sold these pieces to Saatchi in the early 1990s for a considerably smaller sum. Despite Hirst’s insults to Saatchi, Saatchi remains a staunch supporter, labeling Hirst a genius.

In June 2007 Damien Hirst opened his exhibition Beyond Belief, highlighting Hirst’s new work including the centre-piece, a memento mori titled For the Love of God, a human skull recreated in platinum and adorned with 8,601 diamonds. The asking price for For the Love of God was £50,000,000.
