Damien Hirst at the Tate Modern

So as you guys know, I went to London last week to see the New Designers 2012 exhibition, but I also managed to squeeze in a visit to the Tate Modern because I wanted to see the Damien Hirst exhibition. And of course, I got a copy of the Damien Hirst book... Well it would have been rude not to! Here's some images from the book because the exhibition was a 'no photography' basis.



8 Pans 1987

Boxes 1988

Stimulants (and the Way They Affect the Mind and Body) 1991

The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Something Living 1991

In and Out of Love
(White Paintings and Live Butterflies) 1991

There was a whole room filled with live butterflies flying around. At first they looked really dull and ugly, with their wings closed and then I seen one flutter off the wall and there was the most stunning flash of blue and green!



Beautiful, cataclysmic pink minty shifting horizon exploding star with ghostly presence, wide, broad, painting 2004

This was one of my favourite paintings. The mix of the sickly pink and minty colour just satisfies me so much!

 
Lullaby, the Seasons 2002

Doorways of the Kingdom of Heaven 2007

Sympathy in White Major - Absolution II 2006

Sympathy in White Major - Absolution II 2006


The Abyss 2008

Sorry for the image overload.... Just really wanted to share it with you guys!
Cigarettes, butterflies, pills, sharks, cows, sheep, honey and a fair few other eccentric and (seemingly) random objects. If you haven't visited the exhibition, I highly recommend you go!! All very interesting concept pieces split into 14 rooms.
 Go and by hypnotised by Damien!
