First exhibited in 1988, Hirst’s Spot works, otherwise known as the Pharmaceutical Paintings, have become one of the most pervasive images in contemporary art. The works were initially conceived as a scientific approach to painting, much like drug companies’ scientific approach to life, and Hirst has sought to depict the innumerable unique arrangements made possible by altering the color, size, and placement of the dots.
This particular example is a woodcut print with 6 inch diameter spots, printed on 410 gsm Somerset White textured paper. It is a fine example of Damien Hirst’s iconic spot series that is both a centre piece size (in excess of 100x140cm and currently framed in a white 4 inch frame) and from a small edition of just 48.
