“Hirst, Globally Dotting His ‘I’”, The New York Times
January 13, 2012

Read Roberta Smith’s well-written description of the Hirst “Spot Paintings” show; though it plays to both the Hirst fans and Hirst foes, it does both extremely well. It’s almost like Damien got so big he’s bigger than any critic’s review, so it can only be described as a phenomenon, a fact , a spectacle, a news item, it’s beyond “good” or “bad”, and that is something to think about. The only question that isn’t addressed is timing, why now? Maybe that’s what I’ll write my next article on.
