Black Scalpel Cityscapes is the latest series by renowned UK artist Damien Hirst. These canvases are collages of steel surgical instruments and found metal scraps on black paint. Portrayed from a bird’s-eye view, each image casts intricate metropolitan systems and patterns into sharp, shiny relief. The series plays with themes of repetition, order, death, surgery, sterility and precision and was inspired by contemporary warfare’s “surgical strikes” and “surgical bombing” tactics, which pinpoint targets using remote aerial surveillance and mapping.
