Damien Hirst’s ‘Biopsy Paintings’ image the ‘beyond belief’ elements of human biology. Previous catalogues to accompany his White Cube exhibition of 2007 have been sold with 4 varying covers, dispatched at random to buyers.

In this limited edition, a series of 20 variable covers have been united to create a complete ‘Biopsy Painting’ reproduction, with the actual catalogues framed back to back, signed and presented as if in a medical display cabinet. The format is a cell of cells - the minutiae ever divisible and metonymic.

These unimaginably small cells compound the profound joy and decay of human existence, a motif common to Hirst’s practice. The broken glass, scalpel blades and sanguine paint in this series simultaneously attract and disgust; their glittering violence is part of their morbid, insistent appeal.
