I was thinking about Stockholm Syndrome, and how it’s a bit like loving teenagers. How in the face of constant abuse by your captors you none the less have feelings of affection and love. No doubt my children would quibble with just who is the captor in my scenario. What is a cage, and metaphorically, do we mostly create our own captivity? These cages have no door, they are part sanctuary, safety, and prison.

I don’t love this piece, but it was my first glass drawing of a bird, and I enjoy seeing how this developed into the black and white cages.
