Critical Review

Clash is part of Hirst’s Eat the Rich series. Composed of twelve prints, this series is inspired by pharmaceutical packaging. Each print in the series uses the familiar format of a box of tablets, something that everyone will have encountered at some point in their life. The tablet names, however, all carry connotations of force and aggression, contrasting with their medicinal and healing properties.

Hirst has long been interested in modern medicine and explored pharmaceuticals in his Medicine Cabinet series which the artist was working on while studying Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in London in the late 1980s. Throughout the Eat the Rich series, Hirst is able to pursue wider themes of life and death, mortality and 21st century society's obsession with modern medicine.
