Damien Hirst Is Now Selling Pared-Down Versions of His Monumental ‘Veil Paintings’ Via the Same Company That Released His NFTs, Richard Whiddington, δημοσίευση Artnet News [2/12/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Damien Hirst himself has put oil to paper for his latest release with HENI.
On November 15, the artist’s “Paper Veils” series dropped on the art services company’s new marketplace, HENI Primary. The collection is essentially a downsized version of Hirst’s monumental “Veil Paintings” from 2017 which deployed thick brushstrokes and heavy impasto to appear as though Georges Seurat had painted furiously and without subject.
“Paper Veils” features 100 large works and 200 small works priced at $45,000 and $25,000 respectively. Unlike his much-produced spot paintings, Hirst’s own hand, rather than those of his myriad assistants, are responsible for his latest project with HENI.
“I want you to get lost in them, I want you to fall into them,” Hirst said in a statement. “I want them to delight your eyes and make you want to stay in the painting.”
A showing of the paintings at HENI’s London Soho gallery is running in parallel to the pre-sale period online which lasts until December 6.
