This post, by by Robin Cembalest, executive editor of ARTnews and gallery columnist for, spiced up my morning!

     I never really cared for Damien Hirst’s spin paintings.  I see the same thing done in the children’s activity section at Larkfest in Albany every year.

     This, however, is impressive.  My favorite feature is how their signatures contrast and compliment each other. The value of the individuality captured in a few small scribblings far exceeds the demonstration of centrifugal force via paint.

I approve ;).



The Gift that Keeps on Giving:

Multi-Coloured Deluxe Spin Bass Guitar, a collaboration between Damien Hirst and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is available for £50,000 from Other Criteria. Proceeds go to support Flea’s music charity, Silverlake Conservatory
