Jeremy Deller aims fire at Rupert Murdoch in a new limited-edition fundraising print

This limited-edition print has been created by artist Jeremy Deller, in response to a request from Harry Burden and Emily Taylor, the Australian directors of London based framing business, FRAME London. Sales of the print will raise funds for the victims of the worst bushfires in Australia’s history, whose recovery has been hampered by the global spread of COVID-19.

The artwork is the artist’s impression of one of the Australian residences of the Murdoch family engulfed in smoke and flames.

The print will be sold in aid of the community organisation Mallacoota and District Recovery Association. Images of the fire ravaged town of Mallacoota and its residents sheltering on the beach became front page news around the world.

To raise additional funds FRAME London is currently organising an auction of artwork by artists including Lisa Brice, Nick Goss, Donna Huddleston, Jeremy Deller, Sue Webster, David Noonan and Boy George to take place in early 2021.

Shocked and saddened by the devastation of the bushfires on our homeland we aimed to hold an auction earlier this year to raise funds, but our plans were put on hold during lockdown. The restrictions imposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 has hindered the recovery of victims and many feel they have been forgotten. We are incredibly grateful to Jeremy Deller for contributing this artwork and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the artists who have donated works for the auction to help raise funds and awareness.

Harry Burden and Emily Taylor, Directors FRAME London said

Created within the socio-political cul de sac that is post-Brexit Britain, Pigeon Park pokes fun at the inherited hierarchies of the old order and asks the question of the role and relevance of art as a luxurious commodity in times of social prohibition and uncertainty.


Plates are a rather convenient way to display art, somewhere between ceramic – for the most part, though metals are possible – and painting. Ceramics are in vogue anyway, and as functional objects go, plates are easy to display. In ascending order of price, here are three recent initiatives which have stepped up to the plate:
