Damien Hirst exhibition at the Fondation Cartier

From June to November 2020, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain invites British artist Damien Hirst to unveil his latest paintings


Fondation Cartier Pour L'Art Contemporain

From June to November 2020, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain invites British artist Damien Hirst to unveil his latest paintings, the Cherry Blossoms. The result of two years intense of work in his London studio, the series is part of Hirst’s career-long investigation into painting and his desire to return to the pure immediacy of this element of his practice. Cherry Blossoms marks the artist’s first museum exhibition in France.
The Cherry Blossoms reinterpret, with playful irony, the traditional subject of landscape painting. Hirst combines thick brushstrokes and elements of gestural painting, referencing both Impressionism and Pointillism, as well as Action Painting. The monumental canvases, which are entirely covered in dense bright colors, envelope the viewer in a vast landscape that traverses the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Cherry Blossoms are at once a subversion and homage to the great artistic movements of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. They are part of the pictorial investigation carried out by Hirst since the start of his career, which explores color, beauty, perception and the role of the artist.
Address: 261, boulevard Raspail 75014
