Since the late 1980’s, Hirst has worked in a variety of practices including installation, sculpture, painting and drawing, exploring the relationship between art, life and death. Hirst explains, “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else … there isn’t anything else.” The artist looks to investigate and shake up current belief systems, looking in-depth at the tensions and anxieties hidden at the very core of human existence.
 
Hirst explains, “I am absolutely not interested in tying things down. I look to explore the big issues of death, life, religion, beauty, science.” In 2007, the artist unveiled his break taking, ‘For the Love of God’ - a platinum cast of a skull set with over 8,000 flawless pavé-set diamonds. The piece was exhibited at the White Cube during their display of ‘Beyond Belief’. The skull was created as a reminder that our existence on earth is fleeting. Hirst looked to combine classic memento mori with inspiration from Aztec skulls and Mexican decorative tradition. Hirst explains, “You don’t like death, so you disguise it or you decorate it to make it look like something bearable – to such an extent that it becomes something else.” The skull also symbolised the merciless nature of the diamond industry, and the supporting capitalist society. Hirst explains the diamonds “bring out the best and the worst in people…people kill for diamonds, they kill each other”.
 
Here at Valuelights we’ve drawn inspiration from Damien Hirst’s famous diamond skull and created our own chrome plated 'Yorick' skull table lamp featuring a modern skull base with a polished chrome finish. This Hirst inspired piece is a must have for any art and interior design lover.
