About the Artwork

In Paper Kite Butterfly on Oleander Hirst again features his signature motif – the butterfly – alive in his natural surroundings, hanging at a beautiful colored blossom. This picture stands in contrast to his Butterfly Paintings, which consist of actual dead butterflies or thousands of arranged butterfly wings, through which Hirst has provoked several controversial discussions.

"I just wanted to find out where the boundaries were. I've found out there aren't any. I wanted to be stopped but no one will stop me."

Damien Hirst

The first glimpse on a Hirst often creates an uplifting experience and a moment of pure astonishment induced by the beauty of the patterns and colors. The second thought then might provoke the viewer to think about fundamental questions concerning the meaning of life, death and the fragility of biological existence.
