ABSTRACT
DAMIEN HIRST: TWO WEEKS ONE SUMMER White Cube, SE1 BEN LUKE STANDING in front of Three Parrots With Guitar and Jug (2010-12), one of more than 40 new paintings by Damien Hirst, I felt an emotion I never expected this once-brilliant artist to provoke: pity. Hirst's first oils on canvas, shown at the Wallace Collection in 2009, were dire but, staggeringly, he has got far worse in the past three years. Showing the paintings in this abundance, one cringeworthy and wretched canvas after another, is like prolonging the suffering of a dying animal.
