Artist's Statement

This bas-relief sculpture is the first in a series of TV News works, satirising the powerfully edited, sanitised and enticing form in which the daily news is screened into our homes. This edition, # Protest, refers to current service delivery protests taking place around the county. Parts of the image have been sourced from various local media images.
