Through a destruction of preordained rules and above all an approach that oscillates between rebellion and jest, Hirst eloquently articulates the notion of uncertainty intrinsic to human experience. In the Spin Paintings the artist surrenders to chance as the rotating vortex of the machine controls a schema of polychromatic streaks. This process renders the final composition entirely unpredictable – a culminating image of spontaneity. Bursting with rhythmic vitality, Beautiful Autumn Painting spectacularly encapsulates Hirst’s playful preoccupation with the profound themes of life, death, eternity, and, perhaps most poignantly, the uncertain: “The truth is that there are many truths, really, but I think the truth is that we are here for a good time, not a long time. The truth is that life is short. The truth is that a lot of the time it is meaningless. The truth is that death doesn’t require us to make a day free. The truth is that things are out of our control” (Damien Hirst cited in: Christian Gether and Marie Laurberg, op. cit., p. 32).
