Damien HIRST (1965-) English
Spin, 2002 Signed Damien Hirst' (on the reverse) Acrylic on paper - Acrylique sur papier D: 45,7 cm - 18 in. AED 146,900 -220,400 Provenance Haunch of Venison, London (9191) Anon. sale: Christie's, London, Post-War and Contemporary Art, Oct. 16, 2007, lot 638, ill. Public notes The works are described by the artist as childish...in the positive sense of the word'. Whilst the chance spontaneity of the spin paintings stands in stark contrast to the formulaic spot series, both explore the idea of an imaginary mechanical painter. The results of the spins are controlled purely by the artist's colour choices and the motion of the machine. Hirst explains the simplicity of their appeal: I really like making them. And I really like the machine, and I really like the movement. Every time they're finished, I'm desperate to do another one'.
