Meaning & Analysis

Blue Butterfly formed part of Hirst’s exhibition, entitled In the darkest Hour there may be Light, which displayed Hirst’s Murderme collection at the Serpentine Gallery, London, between November 2006 and January 2007. The collection began through a series of exchanges with friends and displayed the work of several artists. It is symptomatic of how Hirst’s influences developed.

The highly detailed body of the blue butterfly sits against a bright pink background. On the right wing of the butterfly, it appears as though a shadow has been cast. The outer left wing and lower right wing appear translucent in the print.

Hirst’s work is one of many that depicts butterflies. Latterly, Hirst’s 2013 It’s A Beautiful Day collection and his 2015 I Love You collection depict singular butterflies against block colour backgrounds. However, there is a distinctly evocating feeling to his 2006 Blue Butterfly. The blue butterfly is contrasted with the plain pink backdrop. This was done again by Hirst in his 2011 Block print entitled New Beginnings 5. In the first instance, the slightly asymmetrical result of the print, the presence of shadow, and the immaculate detail of the animal imbue it, at the centre of the print, with a sense of individualism.
