Meaning & Analysis

Many of Hirst’s works foreground themes of love, aesthetics, life and death and the I Love You series exemplifies this. Speaking of his interest in the topic of love, Hirst has explained, “Love is a beautiful thing, and I see it as a small antidote to the horrors of the world.” Particularly, Hirst’s colour choice of red and pink, as well as the central heart motif, makes clear an interest in love as a feeling and concept universally understood by many.

The central butterfly motif that forms the basis of the I Love You series is a prominent figure that Hirst has used throughout his career. The artist’s interest in butterflies lies in their symbolic relation to death and resurrection. Hirst began his obsession with the motif when he was 26 with his installation In And Out Of Love (Butterfly Paintings And Ashtrays) (1991).
