Critical Review

The Cure (deep sky blue, electric purple, lipstick red) is one of thirty silkscreen prints that compose Hirst’s The Cure series. The series is inspired by the marvels of modern medicine and the powerful pharmaceutical industry which assumes an important role in 21st century society. The minimalist aesthetic of the medicinal pill reflects the confidence of the pharmaceutical industry in their pharmaceutical products and their ability to heal and cure everyone and everything.

Hirst has a long-standing interest in medicine and pharmaceuticals which he has explored in other works such as the Medicine Cabinet series and Eat the Rich. By making a pharmaceutical product into art, Hirst blurs the strict dichotomy between art and science, demanding that we appreciate the art behind science.
