About This Item: 
The series of recent Colour Space paintings by Damien Hirst (born 1965) have deep roots in Hirst's practice, relating to his Spot Paintings, a series begun by the artist in 1986, during his first year as a student at Goldsmiths Conceived in 2016, Colour Space serves as a response to the iconic Spot Painting series Where the Spot Paintings are painstakingly rigorous in their formulaic grid structure, intended to look as if they'd been made "by a person trying to paint like a machine, " the Colour Space series is looser and more painterly, featuring informal drips and splashes of paint Both series, however, share a system--no two colors repeat within a single canvas.The Spot Paintings were always conceived of as an ongoing project (1, 365 and counting), but Colour Space is a finite series, consisting of more than 260 works painted with household gloss paint on canvas These paintings are then subcategorized by spot size: 6 mm, 10 mm, 25 mm, 75 mm and 100 mm, with a selection executed on a black background Each painting is fully illustrated in this publication, alongside artwork details and an introductory essay by Ann Gallagher, director of collections at Tate
