Artist of the Day- Colin Davidson (click on image to see more)

Davidson is an Irish artist who tends to work in series. His first, after college was views of Belfast which was  beginning to emerge from "the Troubles". He then turned to these 'head' paintings. The paintings are big. Maybe 3 times life size. The first one of Mark Knoffler was so compelling. I thought I might weep. Somehow he looks so vulnerable. Shown are Knoffler, Kenneth Branagh, Angelo Merkel...but many, many more are writers, poets and activists.
