Damien Hirst



Since I'm pottering around the New York Times website, here's their review of Damien Hirst at the Boston MFA. Unfortunately, they don't have the cows, man - the pic's from an exhibition at the Tate Britain last year.

I'm kind of torn on what to think of Hirst, whose work I first saw at the Tate, back in the days when the Tate was in Pimlico. Sometimes I feel he's just too obvious about modernity and soullessness, other times I really like the clinical nature of his work.



There's an exhibition of some of Damien Hirst's work here in Oslo now - I must say I'm also divided (like his Mother and Child) about his work...

See http://bjornsmestad.blogspot.com/2005/06/art-damien-hirst-and-monuments.html for my short comments on that exhibition.


Take a look at this...
