u have to do to c there is a prob is turn on ur TV the airwaves are saturated with political ads funded by a handful of billionaires pushing their narrow agenda. The result? The massive megaphone ey've bought is drowning out the voices of everyone else. Take a look at the House of Representatives. After Citizens United, polluter dollars poured into campaigns all over the country. political money distorting the priorities of our democracy
KIRSTY WHITLOCK I like kirsty Whitlock's work as she uses free machine embroidery to draw and adorn a surface. She uses recycled materials like in this piece she has used a tesco bag and a newspaper to create a piece. These slogans are embroidered onto the bag and are comments about society today. I love political art as I feel it has purpose and is another way of people speaking their views. There is also layers thread sewn and left hanging to create more texture and distress the piece.
Florida is taking advantage of the new political environment to try and weasel out of its legal commitment to clean up Everglades National Park.
Lucas Simoes created this piece of artwork, he simply burnt through photographs. I love these photographs because they are intriguing as they disguise the woman's identity. I love the colours created by the fire.
