- Paintings incorporating butterfly wings accompanied by the Psalms for which they were named.
Essays by Michael Bracewell, Amie Corry.
Includes bibliographical references.
This beautifully illustrated book constitutes a comprehensive survey of Damien Hirst's Psalm paintings. The 150 works in the series are made up of iridescent butterfly wings and paint on canvas, which combine to form kaleidoscopic patterns reminiscent of Gothic stained glass windows. Dating from 2008, the paintings address some of Hirst's most enduring and important themes: beauty, art, belief, life and death.
