Critical Review

The print is part of Hirst’s Veils collection which was inspired by the concept of a veil. The way in which Hirst uses layers of paint in these compositions can be seen as a series of veils that obscure whatever lies beneath the surface of the composition.

The influence of Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism shine through in the loose and free style of these abstract artworks. The use of spots also resonates strongly with the Pointillist movement which was developed by Georges Seurat and Paul Signanc. Hirst often uses spots in his artworks, notably in his Spot paintings. The scientific precision of the Spot paintings, however, is absent from these works which privilege a more spontaneous approach to creating art.
