Catalogue Note

"You’ve got colour, pure colour on its own. And then you’ve got the meaning of objects. And with the Spot Paintings, that’s when you take the colour out, and you deal with it separately. You take all the colour out of a situation, ‘cause it’s getting in your way, and you bang it into the Spot Paintings" (Damien Hirst cited in: Damien Hirst, On The Way to Work, London 2001, p. 125).
