H1-8 Enter The Infinite - Ecstasy is a Jacquard-woven tapestry produced by contemporary artist Damien Hirst in 2016. The tapestry comes in a limited edition size of 20 and depicts a pattern composed of red, yellow, blue and green thread against a white backdrop. Yellow thread dominates the composition which complements the blue diamond shape that is threaded into the centre of the composition. The pattern seems to reverberate from this central shape which produces a dynamic illusion of movement.
The tapestry is one of twelve square tapestries which are part of Hirst’s Enter The Infinite collection. Each tapestry in this collection follows a similar formula using red, blue, green and yellow thread to produce a kaleidoscope pattern. The tapestries are all made using a Jacquard loom which was invented in 1804 by French weaver Joseph-Marie Jacquard. The loom was an important piece of technology that revolutionised the production of textiles as it meant that complex patterns could be produced by unskilled workers in a fraction of the time.
Hirst is widely recognised as an artist who works across different mediums. The artist is arguably best remembered for his installations in which dead animals were showcased in glass vitrines, preserved in formaldehyde. Hirst also garnered critical acclaim for his Spot paintings and Spin paintings.
