Taken from the artists iconic ‘Spots’ series.
The spots series began when Hirst was still a student at London’s Goldsmiths Art School. The works have been described as “essays in pure colour” and often refer to Hirst’s on-going fascination with medicine and pharmacological drugs.
‘Curare’ was created by the master printers at Manifold editions. The precise and complex printing process has been described below.
6.The printing process is replicated for every print, so no two prints are exactly the same.
In our Brighton gallery, we have a number of rare and sought after editions by Damien Hirst including his ‘Souls’ series of butterflies, additional spots prints and ‘The Cure’, the artist's series of pop-coloured medicinal pills.
