‘THE EMPRESSES’ SERIES BY DAMIEN HIRST
‘The Empresses’ by Damien Hirst, a series of five glorious prints depicting carefully composed images of butterflies, published by HENI Editions.
The striking Empresses prints are constructed of beautiful images of red butterfly wings, which are intricately arranged with a filigree of red glitter to produce visually intoxicating kaleidoscope-like effects. The prints are named after five exceptionally influential female rulers: Wu Zetian, Nūr Jahān, Theodora, Suiko and Taytu Betul. Their characters and stories are enhanced by the dominant red tone of the series, which deals with themes such as life, war, power, anger, love, joy and luck.
Hirst introduced butterflies to his work over 20 years ago, at his first solo show In and Out of Love in 1991. The exhibition at the Woodstock Street Gallery in London was spread over two floors; upstairs, behind shelves with pots of flowers, Hirst had installed white canvases with pupae attached to them from which, during the show, live butterflies emerged.
Downstairs included a display of colourful canvases scattered randomly with butterflies. Butterflies have since become one of the key features of Hirst’s repertoire; aesthetically seductive, they epitomize the artist’s ongoing concern with key themes of human existence such as beauty and death, science and religion.
