H7-1 Butterfly Rainbow is a laminated giclée print on aluminium composite panel. The print was made by contemporary artist Damien Hirst in 2020. The print depicts a large rainbow in the centre of the composition. When looked at from a distance, the rainbow appears ordinary, however, when looked at closely, it becomes apparent that the coloured bands are composed of butterflies. Butterflies are one of Hirst’s most well-known motifs. Butterflies occupy an important role in the artist’s visual language, as seen in the Mandala Paintings and the Kaleidoscope series.
H7-1 Butterfly Rainbow was made by Hirst in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The print was made to show support for the NHS and their hard work. Hirst chose the rainbow shape as this symbol has become associated with the NHS and their COVID-19 response. The rainbow has been used by the public to show their solidarity with people working on the frontline
H7-1 Butterfly Rainbow is part of the H7 series, composed of two print variations, both of which are dedicated to raising money for charity during the pandemic. When discussing the series, Hirst explains: “I wanted to do something to pay tribute to the wonderful work NHS staff are doing in hospitals around the country.”
