Glazed and Pearlized
This Glazed and Pearlized silkscreen print by Damien Hirst is the perfect contemporary juxtaposition within this historically modern home.
Reaching nearly 50 x 50 inches in size, this colorful silkscreen titled St. Peter’s (from Hirst’s 2007 Cathedral series) presides over the dining room mantel. A kaleidoscope of yellows, blues and soft lavenders, this artwork is part of the artist’s varied practice that explores the complex relationships between art, religion and science.
With this project we hoped to achieve a lighter and more playful interaction between the artwork and the butterfly fabric on the chairs, while satisfying our client’s desire for a harmonious blend of old and new.
