This monograph surveys fifteen years of Hirst's drawing practice, from simple notations to detailed working drawings. The collection allows the reader to explore Hirst's preoccupations and passions focusing on the ambiguity at the heart of human experience: the confusing relations between art and life, life and death, image and reality, change and stasis, communion and isolation, entrapment and escape, love and relationship. The drawings are complemented by a selection of thumbnail photographs of the finished sculptures and paintings. From the Cradle to the Grave allows us a clear understanding of how Hirst's compelling artworks were conceived and shows us the vitality behind their creation. From the Cradle to the Grave is an exquisitely produced 352-page monograph containing over 300 drawings. The book is printed as a hardback using a six-colour printing process, highlighting the tonal qualities of the pencil line and the warmth of the paper. Accompanying essays by Annuska Shani and A. A. Gill. Designed by Jason Beard.
