Damien Hirst: "Yeah, the first [Spot Painting] absolutely changed my world. I’d looked at all this stuff like conceptual art, but it was the first time I had clarity in some way. The thing that was causing me the problem in painting was colour, finding a structure where I could lay it down, be in control of it rather than it controlling me. Once I’d done that, I didn’t really have problems with colour anymore" (Damien Hirst in conversation with Sir Nicholas Serota, in: Exh. Cat., London, Tate Modern, Damien Hirst, 2012, p. 92).
