Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Beyond Limits Chatsworth 2011


And so to art. Chatsworth makes a stunning location, even when it is wrapped in white plastic.  Two Damien Hirst sculptures,  Myth and Legend were placed at the top of the Canal Pond which was garnished with a couple of white swans for further effect.

Myth and Legend

Myth and Legend 1-1


Legend Damien Hisrt 2-1

The whiteness of the white is simply brilliant (obviously not Dulux paint then) and I liked the fact these sculpture didn’t have the silly little fences around them. I loved how the light bounced up off the plinths up-lighting the beasts


Legend -1


Myth Damien Hirst-1

Looking at the texture, it brings to mind the sight and the smell of a new packet of plasticine

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  2. Did Spud accompany you to see the sculpture? I am picturing my dog, who would have had to leave a little message behind on those pristine white bases.
