About the Artwork
Damien Hirst’s hypnotizing “Cineole” is part of his “Pharmaceutical” series. These paintings and prints are created from lines of colored spots that repeat the same pattern: spots of every different shade are mathematically aligned, their diameter equal to the distance between each spot. Resembling pills, the repetitive motif can prove disturbing; a feeling enhanced by the scientific titles.
"Art is always very simple, or good art is always very simple."
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). Cineole is the name of a drug that Hirst found in the catalog produced by the chemical company Sigma-Aldrich.
