October 17 2007 Art Appreciation Newsletter


British artist Damien Hirst mixes art and commerce (reminiscent of Andy Warhol). Recently named "the most expensive living artist," Hirst sold his "Lullaby Spring pill cabinet" for $19.1 million at Sotheby's. Famous for his animals in formaldehyde, especially his lamb and his "Lamb of God" theme, now there is "For the Love of God," a life size scull of diamonds and platinum valued at $99 million. It shouldn't be a surprise that the scull, with 8,601 diamonds totaling 1,106.18 carats sold for $100 million. Who would pay that outrageous amount, you ask? If you haven't heard, the buyer was an investment group of which Hirst is a member. They plan on sending the skull on tour to museums and galleries around the world. Another tidbit of news, Damien Hirst has created wearable art, a charm bracelet with metallic pills. They are signed and numbered, limited-edition, in sterling silver and 18 ct yellow gold. The artist states, "Art feels more alive when people wear it." Be sure to read my article, "Damien Hirst and His Lamb of God Theme in Art."
