The painting is titled ‘Monochromatic Sectors from Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Colour Ring with Dark Centre’, and is part of a new series Hirst is currently working on. It consists of a circular canvas with an eight foot diameter, painted in monochromatic sections of bright colours: the darkest of each shade at the canvas centre. The painting references the colour wheels used by studios, schools and for general reference to work out opposite colours. The twelve colours depicted are: the primary, consisting of red, yellow and blue; the secondary, orange, green & purple; and the tertiary, yellow-orange, orange-red, red-purple, purple-blue, blue-green and yellow-green. It will be added to Hirst’s online Catalogue of Work shortly.
