How many people do you think have looked at Damien Hirst’s exasperating spot paintings — online and in person — and thought, “I could do that”? Well, as far as we know, the only artist who has actually acted on that realization is photographer Henry Hargreaves. Best known for his work with food (you may have seen his burnt-toast portraits, bacon alphabet, or rainbow hamburger), Hargreaves has collaborated with stylist Sarah Guido on a handful of Hirst-inspired spot photographs, with dozens of M&M colors filling in for painted dots. Perhaps the most wonderful thing about the series is its title: Can I Also Get a Show at the Gagosian? If it were up to us, Henry, the gallery doors would be wide open.
