DESCRIPTION

Listed among the world’s most successful living artists, Damien Hirst’s work often ignites controversy and operates as a catalyst for introspection among viewers. His subject matter strikes at the heart of humanity’s shared and yet most concealed insecurities, doubts and frailties as he redefines the boundaries of religion, art, science, philosophy and their role in the life of post-modern man.

Saint Sebastian, Exquisite Pain, Hirst’s arrow-pierced bullock, serves as the exhibition’s focal point, uniting all the works with shared themes, death vs. life, beauty vs. violence. His use of non-traditional artistic representations to depict the classical imagery of the religious martyr not only captures the Saint’s orthodox iconography, but also, along with other works featured in the exhibition, The Incomplete Truth, and Saint Bartholomew, emphasizes both the beauty and violence in death by juxtaposing the created image with what it actually is, a dead animal.
