About

Peter Rhoades is tutor in Fine Art at Christ Church College, Oxford.

This set of drawings was made in response to press imagery taken from the Israeli assault on Gaza, named “Operation Cast Lead” of 2008-9. Peter was struck by the savagery of the attack by one of the most powerful military forces on earth on a very weakly defended population. His response, at the time, was augmented and focused by a newspaper article by Professor Avi Shlaim of St Antony’s, Oxford, an eminent expert on the Palestine/Israel issue. A subsequent attack, of even worse dimensions, took place in 2014.

The drawings are intended as a testament to the ongoing deprivations and suffering of the Palestinian people.
