ROCCO FAZZARI

The image represents the power that an American president can find in simply calling a press conference. The world listens to a gathering storm from the political leader, as he gives the final word.

The cluster of microphones and Obama pointing is a metaphor – he appears to be directing the storm, having control over something as almighty as the weather.

The use of red tone signifies the power a matador has when wielding his cape. It is a strong and emotive colour often associated with anger, and is present on most of today’s flags, in fact there are few flags that don’t feature red.

"Contrary to what the artist thinks, this made me feel sympathy for Obama. He looks so tired from years of constant strain and undue political attack. He has taken over the country at the worst possible time, a job that may be beyond any one man - and it shows in the piece. I love Obama but this makes me feel his days are numbered as president."
