Critical Review

The print, made in 2010, is part of the artist’s Psalms series which Hirst started in 2008. The series is composed of 150 works, which all incorporate butterfly wings in their design. A central theme in the series is religion, and each print is named after a psalm from the Old Testament, reflective of the way in which Hirst uses his art to question contemporary belief systems, such as religion. The captivating symmetry in the print is similar to the designs of stained-glass windows found in Gothic churches. The circular patterns also carry spiritual significance, resonating with Buddhist mandalas.

Hirst often uses butterflies in his works, and they form the basis for The Souls series, as well as the ambitious Kaleidoscope series. Hirst was drawn to the beauty of these insects and their universal appeal, explaining, “everyone loves butterflies.”
