"Butterfly Painting" by Damien Hirst, 2009
Work in acrylic, framed in a methacrylate case with transparent sides and a wooden background in gold leaf that reveals the artist's signature on the back.
This piece of art was made to celebrate the opening of the PinchukArtCentre in kyiv, Ukraine on April 25-26, 2009. Spin Butterfly shows the spontaneity and overall energy of the artist's creative process. According to Hirst it is a "Huge burst of energy, full of life, color and optimism". The colors used are introduced on the canvas and then subjected to a mechanical rotation movement that extends them, creating a transition of colors, resulting in a unique work of art that becomes pure expression. With this artistic method Hirst imitates Jackson Pollock's action painting.
