English artist Damien Hirst was commissioned by Italian watchmaker Officine Panerai to create two paintings: “beautiful sunflower” and “beautiful fractional sunflower”. The new pieces, are actually created by a process called spin painting, featuring dozens of watch components from Panerai timepieces. Both works are the protagonists in the exhibition ‘o’clock, exhibited at the Triennale di Milano in Italy. The exhibition is curated by Silvana Annicchiarico and Jan van Rossem, with a special 8-timepiece installation by Patricia Urquiola entitled, “I mondi di Officine Panerai” (The Worlds of Officine Panerai).
