The first Damien Hirst piece, Sensation, is encountred while driving to the carpark. From the car it look looks like something from an amusement park or fun fair. Looking like brightly coloured plastic. On closer inspection, it appears to be a magnification of a section of skin complete with hairs.

I went to the Fermoy Gallery in King’s Lynn to see Alison Dunhill’s exhibition ‘Plaster, Parquet and Pillars’ with great anticipation. My first impression was, “I love it!”
In this beautiful space with natural light coming in from above, the predominantly small scale work was excellently curated. Each piece is an island of discovery. An element of play is present.
This May, Nature in Art celebrates its 30th Anniversary. This first and finest award-winning museum is home to a varied and ever-changing collection of the best wildlife art; not only from Great Britain, but world-wide. WNAA member David Cook is privileged to have several of his artworks in their Permanent Collection.
