Artist's statement

This is a portrait of Margo Kingston, journalist and author. The small readymade figures refer to ongoing political issues undermining our 'humane, egalitarian, liberal democracy', played out in this image as a part tableau below her clear-eyed gaze. She can see exactly what is happening in the big and small picture and is unmoved by the spin and dissemblance of mainstream media.
