Damien Hirst - Mandalas

Continuing themes from his ‘Kaleidoscope’ series, Hirst’s new works take inspiration from the ‘mandala’, a symbolic representation of the universe that can be used as a meditative instrument.

In these paintings, iridescent and delicate butterfly wings are laid onto canvas and held in place by a richly coloured surface of gloss paint. Arranged concentrically, in contrast to the grid structure of earlier series, the whole serves to create a rhythmic and mesmeric pattern that draws the viewer in.
