Critical Review

The Cure (vivid blue, cloudy pink, candy floss pink) 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. The series is based on the minimalist aesthetic of the medicinal pill which fascinated Hirst due to the way in which it reflected the confidence and self-assured nature of the pharmaceutical industry.

Hist has long been interested in pharmaceutical products and the pharmaceutical industry itself. The artist explains that medical packaging exudes confidence due to its minimalist packaging which perpetuates the modern fantasy that “everything can be cured”.
