The words are not referring to any kind of drug. I wanted an image that personified both the best and the worst of the subject without literally sticking a TV on there. This led me to working with pictures of Tony Hancock… in the 60s he became a megastar through his television and radio work transforming him into a household name. Unfortunately 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. I’ve tried to hint at the piece looking like an obituary, the newspaper paper and the bold headline text also bearing similarities to a gravestone. Television made him but ultimately destroyed him too.
