Chic and simplistic, Damien Hirst’s Esculetin, 2012 is a vibrant and eye-catching grid of colored dots in a rectangular field of white. Five columns and four rows of these dots rendered in several bright colors are methodically placed throughout the composition. Despite its joyful color palette, the work’s systematic arrangement gives it a clinical aura. This orderly quality is further suggested by the title of the piece, borrowed from the name of a molecular compound often found in plants. Esculetin is a striking manifestation of Hirst’s exploration of color and experimentation with presenting them in an orderly, removed, yet undeniably beautiful way.
Created in 2012, this woodcut in colors on 410gsm Somerset paper is hand-signed by Damien Hirst in pencil in the lower right image and numbered from the edition of 55 in pencil on the reverse.
