Fixation and obsession are age old ideas which affect society in many different ways. In the texts "Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis" by Sigmund Freud and "Antigone" by Sophocles, the theme of obsession is prevalent. Freud discusses the idea of obsession as a conscious action of a subconsious desire or trauma. In Sophocles's, "Antigone," obsession is the driving force behind Antigone's actions against Creon's laws. The theme of obsession in both works shows the idea of obsessive actions as a large factor in life. The paintings in this gallery reflect the idea of obsession in everyday life through the various examples which relate to the texts by Freud and Sophocles.
