  • Catalogue Essay

    The Chapmans’ Disasters of War III, it should be obvious, unlike Goya’s original work, is neither a meditation on, nor commentary about, much less a critique of, its apparent subject. Goya’s work results from an impassioned, desperate engagement with the specific events and effects of war, massively over-reaching and surpassing the conventional discourses of reportage or evidentiary image making... Goya is behind the Chapmans’ Disasters of War III at many levels: he is literally ‘beneath’ some images (reconstituted and over-painted) while elsewhere he is merely a trace or cipher, buried deep within the Chapmans' distinct, idiosyncratic arsenal of figures and fantasies... Disasters of War then, offers something unusual in the way it seems to reveal the Chapmans thinking out loud: working, doodling, joking and playing; responding (or failing to respond); rising to, (or falling over), the same challenges again and again. Both in its entirety and in its discreet parts (in unique sets and individual images within sets) it constitutes a relentlessly imaginative and inventive series of ruminations on and over both the images and their possible associations.
    Simon Baker, London, 2007
