Critical Review

The formulaic composition of the spot paintings are both random and infinite in that each shows a unique colour combination and number of spots. Hirst explains that, “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 colours in a perfect format.”

The repetition of spots in Doxylamine as with many others in the series, creates a visual buzz that is energetic yet highly regimented. The use of perfect circles is eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing, appealing to a wide audience of both specialists and non-specialists. The grid formula for these paintings is the basis for an unbounded series where Hirst can infinitely explore harmonious and contrasting colour combinations.
