One of the twenty-three etchings that comprise the first volume of two portfolios, In a Spin, the Action of the World on Things I and II. The artist first coined this phrase in 1999, when he was explaining the origin of his spot paintings, differentiating the two strands of his work: ‘an involvement with death and decay, and ideas and life: the action of the world on things exists somewhere, and the colour exists somewhere else. And it’s fantastic.’
Why is this rare?
Each etching was made and signed by the artist in London 2002. There are just 68 sets of prints, drastically increasing their desirability.
