Damien Hirst Collection
Etching that belongs to the 2002 portfolio of twenty-three etchings titled “In a Spin: The Action of the World on Things, Volume I” - Hirst’s first attempt to transform his concept of spin drawings and paintings into the print medium.
“In a Spin: The Action of the World on Things, Volume I" represent the series, where Hirst took the etching medium to its limits: in order to create the spin sketches, the etching copper plates had to be fixed to the spin machine which then rotated at high speeds, forcing the sharp scratching tool to perform random movements. The idea of using spin art to make high art came from Hirst’s collaborative participation with the artist Angust Fairhurst. Using an inverted electric drill and a piece of wood onto which they could fasten sheets of paper, Fairhurst and Hirst set up a spin painting stall – an idea borrowed from a once popular children’s game.
