The English born (7th June 1965) Damien Steven Hirst is one of the most famous conceptual artists working today. He became a member of the young British artists group in the 1990s; he was their most prominent member. The most obvious theme with Damien Hirst’s work is death. Some of his most famous pieces often involve dead, dissected animals in big containers. As a student, he worked in a mortuary for some time. This experience seemed to have highly influenced the young student, and Hirst would later use that experience to showcase his curious ‘love of death’. One of his art works ’For the love of god’ (see figure 1) is a life sized, diamond covered, platinum skull that was moulded from an 18th century skull bought by Hirst in London. The skull is set with real teeth, 8,601 high quality diamonds, …show more content…
The piece features a decapitated cows head, sitting in a glass & steel container, lying in its own pool of blood. The white box contains maggots, that then feeds on the head and transforms into adult flies. Another function exists in the box, a fly zapper that after many days kills and continues to kill the flies, until more flies emerge, repeating the cycle over and over again. The materials used seem to be expensive, like most of his works. They also require the assistance of many people to set up such instillations. This seems to diminish the creativity and determination of the artist, as they must pay others to create their subworks. The idea of putting a decapitated animal head on display to show the raw power of death is a bit pretentious. The only unique thing is the continuing life and death cycle of the flies. Damien Hirst comes across as more of a shrewd business man than he does an artist. To pay others to complete a project for you, to then give yourself all the credit and money after the objects completion is a clever scam that seems to rule the modern art
