Description This piece is a reaction to the theme of Television. I wanted an image that personified both the best and the worst of the TV, this led me to Tony Hancock. In the 60s he became a megastar through his television and radio work transforming him into a household name. Off screen he was constantly battling personal demons and his decline in mental and physical state can be measured in the decline of his television programs. His last commission was for a series for local Australian television, after completing only three episodes he was found dead having suffered an overdose of prescription painkillers and alcohol. Television made him but ultimately destroyed him too.
