Damien Hirst

Profile

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965. He first came to public attention in 1988 when he staged the now famous Freeze exhibition in a disused London warehouse. The exhibition included Hirst’s own work and that of his fellow Goldsmith’s College students, Sarah Lucas, Angus Fairhurst and Matt Collishaw.

Since those early, heady days, Damien Hirst has become internationally recognised as one of the most important artists of his generation. He lives in Devon and has studios in London and Gloucester.

Coastal Gallery is delighted to stock a stunning PVC tote bag, first produced for the Damien Hirst solo retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern in 2012.

The bag design features a close up image of Hirst’s 2007 painting, Doorways to the Kingdom of Heaven from his Kaleidoscope series. The series explores the spiritual symbolism of the butterfly, and caused huge controversy as Hirst incorporated real butterflies in the artwork.

The bag retails at £25 and is 360 x 350 x 190 cm in size.

Gohar Goddard

Profile

Gohar was born in Persia (now Iran) and spent her childhood years in France and Pakistan, soaking up the diverse visual language of those cultures.

She settled in England in 1967 and trained as a ceramicist. In 1985, Gohar opened Ziggurat, the luxury yarn store in Kensington. Ten years later, Gohar’s love of beautiful yarns, textiles and colour led her to establish the English Weather clothing label, known for its unusual cashmere designs.

Recently, Gohar has moved more towards painting, gaining inspiration from the work of Matisse, Klee and Tapies. A trip to Cornwall introduced her to fellow colourists, William Scott and Roger Hilton.

‘I am first and foremost a colourist. When I start painting, I begin by mixing colour, trying out new combinations of tints. I apply layer upon layer of these experimental pigments to the canvas, building up texture that appeals…’

Coastal Gallery is delighted to exhibit a selection of Gohar’s stunning work. Please contact us for further details.
