About the Artwork

Both festive and enticing, this new and vibrant spot variation undoubtedly shows how versatile this signature series can be.

"The spot paintings are definitely Conceptual art. There’s an optimism to them which is amazing. They never look tired."

Damien Hirst

The delightful contrast between the twenty-four different pure colours of the spots and the mesmerizing golden leaves on the background offers a spectacular and refreshing visual impact but also celebrates Damien Hirst’s indisputable thirst for experimenting with the newest techniques of print making. “Gold Thioglucose” recalls Byzantine art, when the golden backgrounds signified the presence of the divine. In using this same juxtaposition with his famous spots, Damien Hirst relates his own series to iconic status.
