Let us tell you more about this edition

This glamorous screenprint with glaze and foil block is part of the Till Death Do Us Part skull series. Hirst’s Coral red Skull rebuffs the traditional image of the skull as a symbol of death and decay, transforming it into a glorious memento mori. Despite the ambiguity of the concept, this is Hirst's attempt to present the notion of aspiration to immortality in a playful manner.

"You don’t like it (death), so you disguise it or you decorate it to make it look like something bearable – to such an extent that it becomes something else.” —Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst uses art to change something into something else and thus subvert emotions. His skulls have the capacity to win over death, at least over the temporal, physical, and ugly aspect of it, rotting and decay.
