Stockholm Syndrome

A Studio Exhibition 2001

Stockholm Syndrome remained untitled for years. It is a collection of paintings I did not exhibit in a gallery. Instead I held an open studio exhibition in Melbourne above a shop selling bad, fun, Italian furniture. Lots of personal story I can only skim over as it belongs to me.  Like wading into the ocean and feeling the currents around your legs. All acrylic on canvas paintings.  The title says it all. We can become so used to abuse that we become afraid to let it go.   9/11 punctuated the end of this phase.
