Lot Details

One of the most vibrant and popular works from Damien Hirst's iconic "Spot" series, "Carvacrol" is a screenprint featuring 24 different colors, accented with bronze glitter. The smooth, opaque quality of the screenprinted spots are juxtaposed with the textured sheen of the bronze glitter. First exhibited in 1988, the “Spot” works, also known as the “Pharmaceutical Paintings,” have become one of the art world’s most recognizable and influential images. With the series, Hirst sought to explore a scientific and emotionless approach to painting, a reference to drug companies' scientific, clinical approach to human problems. The title of the present work references carvacrol, an organic compound. Printed on 410 gsm Somerset Tub Sized paper, the work belongs to an edition of 150 and has a sheet size of 38 x 30 inches (96.5 x 76.2 cm).
