Critical Review

The Cure (sherbert green, royal blue, ocean blue) is one of thirty silkscreen prints that compose Hirst’s The Cure series. In this series, Hirst renders a singular pill in a combination of two colour tones against a bold and vibrant coloured backdrop. No two prints in the series are identical as Hirst uses a unique combination of colours for each print. The bold and vibrant colours Hirst uses are clearly influenced by the work of Pop artist, Andy Warhol. Warhol was famous for his Pop Art prints in which he turned everyday objects into works of fine art, using bright colours to draw attention to the works and inject them with energy and dynamism.

The Cure (sherbert green, royal blue, ocean blue) reflects Hirst’s fascination with modern society’s obsession with science, modern medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. 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.
