A new series of paintings that began life in summer 2010 will be on display to coincide with the artist's first major UK retrospective at Tate Modern.This new series evokes traditional still-life and reincarnates the unsettling objects that have appeared in previous sculptures and installations. Painted from life in his Devonshire studio, it offers a new, more personal dynamic in comparison to the conceptual and collaborative processes Hirst often employs. Please note that this exhibition takes place at the White Cube's venue in Bermondsey.
