About the Artwork
Damien Hirst's clock uses the artist's popular spot paintings as its face, the front of which is printed with his signature and the Hirst/Hirst logo. Hirst has been focusing on developing his passion for colour in the iconic Spot Paintings series since 1986. 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.
"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 colors in a perfect format.”
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). Hirst's spot paintings are icons of superficiality for a superficial age.
