Ross Kemp

'Crushing Defeat'
by David Welch

Wistful, yet masculine - great stuff.

With just a few folds, the artist has created an image that is the exact opposite to Ross Kemp himself. This is my favourite.

I keep coming back to this Kemp. There is something harrowing and tragic hidden amongst the folds. It's a true piece of art. Feel the emotion emanating from the Kemp eyes.
Crushing defeat indeed.

'Crushing Defeat' - a very apt title to this piece. The precision of the folds have given rise to a look of resignation in his eyes, a quiet desperation, a disappointment at the world he sees around him. Eastenders..Ross Kemp on gangs... all ultimately meaningless in the grand scheme of things. This fold captures that sense of existential ennui brilliantly.
