For the Love of God, White, is a screen print from 2007 from Damien Hirst’s For The Love Of God series. The print shows a photographic portrait of a human skull viewed from a side on a diagonal angle and set against a white backdrop. The skull is entirely covered with diamonds and set with a large stone in the centre of the forehead.
This print is based on Hirst’s famous diamond-encrusted skull sculpture, For The Love Of God from 2007. The original sculpture is one of Hirst’s most seminal works in his entire oeuvre and is notable for its grandiose and excessive use of materials. For Hirst, diamonds are the ultimate expression of positivity and perfection in the face of death. Fascinated by death as a subject for artistic investigation, Hirst does not represent decay or fear of death with his diamond encrusted piece, but instead transforms this image of mortality into an aestheticized symbol.
Much of Hirst’s printed editions are reminiscent of his most famous sculptural and installation works, indicating his obsession with certain motifs and themes surrounding life and death. Every print in the For The Love Of God series depicts a variation on the For The Love Of God sculpture. This particular print is rendered in a hyperrealist photographic style.
