In celebration of Valentines Day, Paul Stolper Gallery are presenting 'LOVE', a pop-up exhibition of new Damien Hirst prints and sculptural edition. 'LOVE' will run from February 9th-12th, over Valentine’s Day, and will focus exclusively on the theme of love. As Hirst says with relation to the exhibition: ‘Love is a beautiful thing and I see it as a small antidote to all the horror in the world.’
The exhibition includes ‘LOVE Gold’, a portfolio of love heart prints each foil blocked with a single butterfly. Eight of the hearts are silkscreened and six are in gold leaf. Damien Hirst's 'LOVE Gold' is the first of two portfolios, the second, titled 'LOVE Silver', will be released in June 2015. It will include eight silkscreen prints in colours different to 'LOVE Gold' and six prints in silver leaf, each foil blocked with a single butterfly.
Also included will be two love heart pill sculptures ‘♡YU4EVA’, as well as ‘Love Struck’, a heart pierced by a crossbow bolt suspended in a sweet jar.
The gallery will be open Monday to Saturday, 10am - 6pm. Extended opening hours until 7pm Monday the 9th - Friday the 13th of February, or by appointment.
