Critical Review

H7-4 Butterfly Heart is part of the H7 series. The series is composed of this print along with a rainbow shaped variation. The series was produced to raise money for charity. The profits from the limited edition version of H7-4 Butterfly Heart went to The Felix Project, London’s largest surplus food distributor which delivers food to vulnerable people across the UK.

When looked at closely, Hirst’s signature style can be seen in H7-4 Butterfly Heart. The rainbow bands of the heart shape were produced from digital bands of photographed butterfly wings. Butterflies are a well-known motif used throughout Hirst’s work and the insect has become closely associated with the artist’s name. The insects play an important role in the artist’s visual language, as seen in the Mandala paintings and the Kaleidoscope series.
