Critical Review

Deceptively simple and joyous, H5-1 Gritti recalls the absurdity of Dadaism in the obsessive use of dots and gently mocks the processes of pointillist painting.The composition is a tight knit mesh of spots set against a plain white backdrop, the bright and round coloured spots bright and buzzing. The colour and arrangement of the dots appear to be seemingly random and contrast to the original Spot paintings in their spontaneity. Hirst has been fascinated by intuitive colour choice since his days at Goldsmiths and claims that ‘there are still no two exact colours that repeat in each painting.

It is only in the later stages of Hirst’s career that he has become interested in prints and editions. His first print portfolio was produced in 1999 and was a set of screen prints that depicted medicine bottle labels. Since his first print portfolio, Hirst has produced many print series like the Colour Space portfolio.
