In the groove- Etching on paper. This is one of the twenty-three etchings that comprise the second volume of two portfolios, In a Spin, the Action of the World on Things I and II. Each etching was made by the artist in London 2002. A combination of soft and hard ground etching has added painterly splashes of colour to the more regular circling lines. As the title indicates, the portfolio is based on the artist’s spin paintings, an ongoing series initiated in 1995 and titled with long strings of descriptive words.
The chance spontaneity of the spin paintings stands in stark contrast to the formulaic spot series, which is another signature motif of Hirst. However both explore the idea of an imaginary mechanical painter. The results of the spins are controlled purely by the artist’s colour choices and the motion of the machine.
