|January 2023||Phillips London - United Kingdom||Till Death Do Us Part (milk chocolate brown, true blue, bubblegum pink) - Signed Print|
Till Death Do Us Part (milk chocolate brown, true blue, bubblegum pink) is a screen print from Damien Hirst’s Till Death Do Us Part series from 2012. The print shows a flattened image of skull, facing outwards towards the viewer, rendered in bright blue and pink. The image of the skull, taken originally from a photograph, is set against a chocolate brown backdrop.
Reminiscent of the work of Pop artist Andy Warhol, Hirst creates a series of ten prints with repeated subject matter and compositions, but with varying colour combinations to make each print unique. Rendering the fine detail of the skull and setting this against the dark backdrop, Hirst produces a highly simplistic image that finds universally engaging triggers. This contrast between bold colour, the flat backdrop and the realistic image plays with Hirst’s concern with facts and truth that images are assumed to depict.
Fascinated by death, the skull has featured as an important piece of iconography throughout Hirst’s artistic career. Drawing on traditional art historical themes, the title of the series is indicative of the Latin phrase ‘memento mori’, that translates in English to ‘remember that you will die’ and is a common theme in 17th century still life paintings.
