Damien Hirst Collection
The inspiration for this work comes from the series of famous "Spot" paintings, which have become one of the most recognizable works for Hirst creations . Hirst employed assistants to create the spot paintings - any physical evidence of human intervention was removed, until the works appeared to have been constructed mechanically. For Hirst, it was a departure from years of experimenting with paint and collage. "Spots" served as new exploration that served as a medium to solve the problem of colour.
Joyful like candy sweets, round as a pill, the repetitive motif can prove disturbing; a feeling enhanced by the pharmacological title given to each piece. Existing in the majority of cultures, Hirst has used this basic geometric form as the focus of his work to infinite variation: from very tiny (1 millimeter: 1x1/2 inch) to enormous (1m 50: 60 inches), from a single dot to a multitude  (some as many as 25 781 spots, with no repetition of colour).
