H5-8 Savoy is a print from Damien Hirst’s 2018 Colour Space series that shows numerous colourful dots across the entire composition, set against a black backdrop. This print negotiates the artist’s ongoing relationship with dots that has been a constant throughout his oeuvre since his famous Spot paintings. Hirst’s Colour Space paintings, which this series is based on, were first exhibited at the Gagosian Gallery in New York in 2018.
The Colour Space series presents a variation on Hirst’s spot paintings but exudes a more human and painterly aesthetic. Rather than depicting clinical and perfectly painted circles, H5-8 Savoy shows hundreds of dots spontaneously dancing across the composition, sometimes overlapping and coinciding with the occasional paint splatter. The impulsive quality of this print resembles Jackson Pollock’s abstract expressionist works and is far more expressive than Hirst’s earlier works depicting spots and dots.
Despite abandoning the grid formulation of his earlier works, this very recent series adheres to the basic rules of Hirst’s spot paintings. The artist claims that “there are still no two exact colours that repeat in each painting” and the size of the dots in H5-8 Savoy are each the same.
