Publisher's blurb:
From the Cradle to the Grave presents a key selection of drawings and sketches produced by the famed English artist and provocateur Damien Hirst over the past 15 years. For Hirst, drawing is a way of maintaining the flow of imagination, and he does it constantly. Ranging from raw, impulsive sketches to detailed and well-thought-out drawings, these works allow us to explore the artist's preoccupations and passions and his fascination with the ambiguity at the heart of human experience: the confusing relations between art and life, life and death, image and reality, communion and isolation.

The drawings are complemented by a selection of thumbnail photographs of finished sculptures and paintings. Accompanying essays by well-known writers Annuska Shani and A. A. Gill help the reader make connections between the drawings and Hirst's other works of art. Exquisitely produced using a six-color printing process, From the Cradle to the Grave illuminates how Hirst's compelling drawings were conceived and shows us the vitality behind their creation. This is a signed, limited edition. AUTHOR BIO: Damien Hirst was born in Bristol and studied fine art at Goldsmiths College in London. In 1995, he won the prestigious Turner Prize. He has had recent solo exhibitions at the White Cube, London; the Marble Palace, Russia; Saatchi Gallery, London; Gagosian Gallery, New York; and Tate Gallery, London.
