Chic and simplistic, Damien Hirst’s L-Isoleucine Methyl Ester, 2018 is a vibrant and eye-catching grid of colored dots in a rectangular field of white. Eight columns and eleven rows of these dots rendered in bright colors from across the color wheel are methodically placed evenly 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 an amino acid . L-Isoleucine Methyl Ester, 2018 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 2018, this woodcut in colors on 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.
