As much as I will myself to dislike the gaudy, sometimes simplistic, always in-your-face aesthetics of Damien Hirst, I can't deny that I'm continuously drawn to his work. I had a brief encounter with one of his swirl paintings at The Armory Show over the weekend, which resulted in these photos and plans to create one of my own. I've no plans to install a shark tank in my apartment...yet.
