Was surfing in North Devon and made a special visit to Ilfracombe to see Verity. I can see why Damien Hirst did it, it is thought provoking, it is typically contraversial - but I personally did not really like it. The facial expression is not sufficiently lifelike to me and the vision of a dissected pregnant woman is not right whatever the message is.
BUT - I think it is a great tribute to Damien Hirst as a man that he would contribute this as a loan to Ilfracombe, and it attracts a different crowd to the town than would normally visit. I hope it does the area good as Ilfracombe is a lovely town, but has become somewhat rundown over the years.
