Damian Hirst / Kaleidoscope Paintings
November 13, 2013 § Leave a comment
Damian Hirst’s Kaleidoscope Paintings are absolutely amazing pieces of art, but these are no images of butterflies, they’re made from real butterflies so they “shimmer when the light catches it like only real butterflies do.” Several of these visually stunning pieces are to resemble stained glass windows from a Gothic cathedral that almost seem to emit light.
These mandala like works are going to be used as a major inspiration for my own mandala designs, being an example of mandalas made purely from objects as mine are. I particularly like the way he has upon a range of canvas shapes.
