Orvieto, a large-scale dazzling print, is part of Damien Hirst’s famous series of Cathedral prints. This series of works is based on his 2006 Superstition paintings, which use butterfly wings to create shimmering patterns and meticulous compositions that evoke the stained-glass windows of Gothic cathedrals and the tesserae of Byzantine mosaics. Hirst juxtaposes the fragility and exquisite beauty of the butterfly wings to the monumentality and lavishness of religious art, creating a clever interplay of some of Hirst’s favorite themes: nature, religion, life, death and wealth. This print specifically references the Orvieto Cathedral, a large 14th century Roman Catholic cathedral in the town of Orvieto, which sits on a volcanic plug in the region of Umbria, in Italy. The cathedral has a large rose window, eye-catching golden mosaics and three imposing bronze doors. Much like the cathedral’s façade, the visual impact of Hirst’s Orvieto is immediate and captivating.
