Miserere Mei Deu is a signed silkscreen print with glaze produced by renowned contemporary artist, Damien Hirst. The print depicts a mesmerising pattern composed of butterflies. While many of the prints in this series use bright and bold colours, such as red, yellow and green, the colours in this print are much darker and cooler. Blue dominates the composition, as black butterflies with touches of blue and green are set against a dark blue backdrop.
The print, produced by Hirst in 2015, is part of the Psalms series which is composed of 150 prints. Each print in the series shows a pattern made out of butterflies, however the arrangement and colours in each print is different, meaning the series is full of variety and dynamism. The prints in the series are all named after a psalm from the Old Testament, reflecting how religion is a theme that Hirst often explores in his artworks.
The butterfly is an icon that has become closely associated with Hirst. Hirst has incorporated butterflies into his artworks since the debut of his artistic career in the late 1980s. While butterflies are a magnificent insect and capture the beauty of nature, they also act as a sombre memento mori, a visual reminder of the inevitability of death. Death is a theme that Hirst often addresses in his art, and in these prints, butterflies are used to represent the fragility of life and explore questions of life and death.
