Here is a sculpture a little out of the ordinary, the photographs taken this weekend at Alton Towers Hotel after our dance weekend there. Sited in a pool eight metres in diameter, the amalgamation of objects takes some scrutiny but essentially follows along the lines of my own estate car that is too often full of junk. Local sculptor Peter Price made the piece in the mid 1990s for the then newly opened hotel, as well as the stone chess pieces that are in the courtyard entrance. The art in the hotel is of a similar whimsical quality. The fountain is like a Damien Hirst only better. Far better, come to think.
