Critical Review

Fuckoffis one of twelve silkscreen prints that compose the Eat the Rich series. The series is inspired by pharmaceutical packaging. Most of the prints in the series depict tablet boxes, making Fuckoff stand out from the others in the series as its focus is on syringes. The product names in the series all carry connotations of aggression, force and violence. The names of the pharmaceutical products contrast radically with the healing properties of the products.

The influence of conceptual sculptors such as Sol Le Witt and Donald Judd can be seen in the minimalist design of the packaging for Fuckoff. The simple design reflects the confidence in modern medicine and its ability to cure everyone and everything. This print, along with the others in the series, is a means for Hirst to make a statement about the pharmaceutical industry and the significant role this industry plays in 21st century society.
