Exhibitions: Damien Hirst, Gary Tatintsian Gallery, Moscow, 31 March – 1 June, 2017 Mystifiers. NCCA, Moscow, 11.02.2016 - 13.03.2016 Publications: Mystifiers. NCCA, Moscow, 2016 pages 10-11, 35-37 Emblazoned with artist’s signature imagery of the skull, this painting represents the physicality of man in opposition to metaphysical views of existence. Far from cheerfulness, the work alludes to darkness and danger. The multi-coloured fragments adorning the skull appear to be part of an ominous celestial scene such as a galactic explosion. ⠀ 'I want the viewer to do a lot of work and feel uncomfortable. They should be made to feel responsible for their own view of the world rather than look at an artist’s view and be critical of it.’ – Damien Hirst. Courtesy Gary Tatintsian Gallery and the artist.
