Exhibition | Ordinary People by Rob Chapman

Exhibition | Ordinary People by Rob Chapman

 

This body of work was put together in order to represent the fate of ordinary people at the hands of those whose desire for power was/is greater than their compassion for, or even their consideration of, those people. The time frame for this work is only one hundred years, 1920s – 2021, but it acts as a representative for the actions of the powerful on the broader populations throughout history. It simply seems wrong that one person’s ambition can be sufficient excuse for the suffering and death of the people they have governance over or have imposed their will upon. Furthermore, the oppression of those with differing religious, racial, political, sexual, etc, origins or beliefs has happened in the past, is happening now and appears set to continue into the future.
