Damien Hirst’s Spot paintings, first exhibited in 1988, are also known as his “Pharmaceutical Paintings.” The present edition, a silkscreen print, presents twenty-four colors of Hirst’s iconic dots set against a silver metallic background.

The random and infinite colour series within the ‘Pharmaceutical’ paintings is integral to the works. Hirst explains that, “mathematically, with the spot paintings, I probably discovered the most fundamentally important thing in any kind of art. Which is the harmony of where colour can exist on its own, interacting with other colours in a perfect format.”[3] Any problems he had previously had with colour, Hirst claims, were removed by the perfect arrangement of complimentary, yet never repeated, colours in the spots.
