Critical Review

When looked at closely, the rainbow stripes in H7-3 Butterfly Heart are composed of butterflies. Hirst achieved this by producing digital bands of photographed butterfly wings. Butterflies are a common motif used throughout Hirst’s work. The insects play an important role in the artist’s visual language, as seen in the Mandala paintings and the Kaleidoscope series.

H7-3 Butterfly Heart is part of the H7 series, composed of two print variations that aimed to raise money for charity. The profits from the limited edition version of H7-3 Butterfly Heart went to The Felix Project, London’s largest surplus food distributor which delivers food to vulnerable people across the UK.
