Catalogue Note

"I want to say something about Hirst's spin paintings: the abstract works made by placing the canvas on a spinning turntable then hurling paint over the surface, so the work is painted by centrifugal force. It was as if Hirst had taken all the slow, hard-won emotion that an artist like Howard Hodgkin worked so long to infuse into his canvases, and distilled it into one 20-second rush of ecstatic pleasure, the visual equivalent of a rush of cocaine." - Richard Dorment
