Critical Review

The print is one of four prints that compose the Veils series. The paintings debuted in 2018 at the Gagosian Gallery and were received with critical acclaim. Speaking about the series, Hirst explains, “a veil is a barrier, a curtain between two things, something that you can look at and pass through, it’s solid yet invisible and reveals and yet obscures the truth, the thing that we are searching for.” The works in this series are all inspired by the concept of a curtain and what it might signify.

The series can be seen as a continuation of Hirst’s Visual Candy paintings which he made in 1993. In a similar manner to H4-1 Sans Souci, in the Visual Candy paintings, Hirst used a variety of bold and vibrant coloured paints which he layered on top of each other in abstract patterns, often involving dots and circles.
