Tweet of the day: David Levene


Hands on hips: Tony Blair.

Well well….

Behind the painted smile LIES a harrowed ex leader. I’m sure this doesn’t fit in with spinster Tony Blair Labour Pr machine. This image looks more like the face he pulls when the news comes on at night with more cataclysmic colonial ideology. The harsh light of the studio on the fore head gives it a feel of inquisition. Photographer David Levine of The Guardian has to be questioned as to whether he has betrayed the sitting model. I’m sure if this was anybody else it would be lost on the cutting room floor?

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
