Damien Hirst & Jeff Koons
Damien Hirst – British 1965
Damien Hirst lives and works in London.
With works known for both their formal beauty and their shock value, Hirst has made some of the most-discussed art of the 90s. Hirst ́s work suggests the transience of life. His sealed-up vitrines-as-mausoleums encourage the viewer to reflect on time and vast cycles of mortality, not only within the sculpture but all around us. Since 1988, Hirst has been making dot paintings that involve color systems. These paintings form a fascinating parallel to his sculptures, and provide an encoded window onto his thinking.
Jeff Koons – American 1955.
Koons lives and works in New York City.
Since his first solo exhibition in 1980, Koons’s work has been shown in major galleries and institutions throughout the world. Koons is widely known for his iconic sculptures Rabbit and Balloon Dog as well as the monumental floral sculpture Puppy (1992), shown at Rockefeller Center and permanently installed at the Guggenheim Bilbao.
