Critical Review

The print is one of four prints that compose Hirst’s Veils series. The series debuted in 2018 at the Gagosian Gallery and was received with great praise and acclaim. Hirst was clearly influenced by the Impressionist and Abstract Expressionism movement, as well as the artistic technique, pointillism, in which a painting is made out of small, distinct dots of colour. The series resonates with Hirst’s later series, The Virtues, produced in 2021, which was dedicated to showcasing the natural beauty of the cherry blossom tree.

Hirst’s use of colour in H4-3 Garden Of Dreams reflects how the artist was deeply interested in the effect colour can have on the eye. In contrast to the Spots works and the Medicine Cabinet series, in which Hirst took a regimented approach to the use of colour, in the Veil series, colour is expressed freely, with different coloured spots overlapping each other.
