Critical Review

The Cure (midnight blue, neon green, fizzy pink) is one of thirty silkscreen prints that compose Hirst’s The Cure series. In this series, Hirst repeats the formula of rendering a singular pill in a combination of two colour tones against a bold and vibrant coloured backdrop. The printing technique Hirst uses, as well as the repetition of subject matter is clearly influenced by the work of Andy Warhol, who rose to fame in America in the 1960s and has become known as the father of the Pop Art movement.

By making a pharmaceutical product into art, Hirst blurs the boundaries between art and science in this print, demanding that we appreciate the art behind science. Hirst has had a longstanding fascination with science and medicine and has produced many artworks that are inspired by pharmaceutical products.
