Tapestry Edition of 20

Critical Review

The tapestry is part of Hirst’s Enter The Infinite collection which is composed of twelve tapestries which all follow a similar colour composition. Of all the tapestries, H1-4 Enter The Infinite - Trance privileges the most blank space in the composition. Some of the tapestries leave little white on show, such as H1-7 Enter The Infinite - Being, however this iteration enables the viewer to see the surface that the threads are woven into. All the tapestries in the collection were produced using a Jacquard loom which was invented in 1804 by French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard.

The symmetrical pattern in H1-4 Enter The Infinite - Trance captures Hirst’s methodological approach to art and the scientific precision that marks many of his artworks. Notable other pieces produced by Hirst which demonstrate this almost clinical approach to art are Hirst’s Spot paintings which the artist worked on from 1986 to 2011. In these paintings, Hirst produced grids of multicoloured dots and circles, all equally spaced out and identical in size.
