SKULLS AND POISONS AND PILLS, OH MY!October 31st, 2011
On the day of Halloween I needed to blog about something somewhat scary but also creative.
The Gagosian Gallery plays host to new paintings by Damien Hirst from two series, Poisonous & Remedies running between October 11th-November 20th.
In Poisons, single images of varying human skulls are silkscreened in black UV ink with charcoal onto large-scale canvases, they are then titled after a toxic chemical, suggesting possible cause of death.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by the novelist Gary Shteyngart.
Just a little eeriness for your Monday Morning.
