Incandescent and celebratory paintings of cherry blossoms from Damien Hirst, in a glorious oversize volume with 18 gatefold spreads.

With 107 new works, Cherry Blossoms marks a new chapter in Damien Hirst's career-long exploration of the physical relationship between artist and canvas that began with his Spot Paintings in 1986. Hirst describes his cherry blossoms as garish and messy and fragile"; the series signals a shift in Hirst's career away from minimalism and "the imagined mechanical painter" toward a painting that delights in the potential haphazardness of the medium, as well as the artist's own fallibility as a creator. Rich in color and striking in number, Hirst's Cherry Blossoms are both an appropriation and a tribute to the pictorial art of the 19th and 20th centuries.
