The Museums Director Adrian Jenkins paid tribute to Hirsts skill as a print maker, having consistently produced throughout his career an enormous range of high quality prints, testing every parameter of the process.


Greville Worthington, a former Turner Prize judge, who curated the exhibition and loaned works from his own collection, described Hirst as a fundamental and traditional artist in many ways, battling with demons, which was reflected in the works on show.


Damien Hirst: Print Maker runs at The Bowes Museum until Sunday February 27.
