Lot description
Damien Hirst's “Gold Tears” is an inkjet, glaze, and foil block print depicting diamonds arranged on gleaming shelves, in the style of the artist's well-known cabinet works. The title adds a melancholy dimension to the glittering display, casting the diamonds as unexpected symbols of transience. This work is part of a series of inkjet and foil block prints by Hirst depicting cigarettes, pills, and diamonds on metallic shelves, with Hirst’s use of foil-blocking onto inkjet giving the works a distinctly alluring surface. Printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth 350 gsm paper, the work belongs to an edition of 55, and has a sheet size of 34 x 28 inches (86.5 x 71 cm), image size of 27.25 x 21.75 (69.2 x 55.2 cm) is inkjet, glaze and foilblock, and is an edition of 55.
