Artist Nigel Thomson had a reputation for shocking and controversial subjects. His Graeme Thorne series dealt with the kidnap and murder of the 8-year-old son of the family that won the first Opera House Lottery in 1960. For Thomson, the incident represents nothing less than Australia’s ‘loss of innocence’. It was the first time the nation had succumbed to the large-scale gambling craze of the lottery. It was the first time the disappearance of a child had dominated the media for weeks on end. Australia, it seemed, was no longer a safe and secure place.
