About the Artist RWB Journal

My work is informed by my personal faith, sense of vulnerability, bereavement, and, my personal experience.

My practice centres on addressing social justice issues of the human condition. I avoid making work of any individual person; so that neither, is the individual stigmatised, nor is the work unduly personalised.

Since January 2012 I have used this blog as part of my reflective journal.
Included in this journal is some of my documentation of my research; the underlined text provides links to web pages etc that have formed part of my research.
The Research Visits category includes some responses to gallery visits.

Steve McQueen

Reflecting further on the lecture by Steve Baker and the work of Steve McQueen I am somewhat surprised by the McQueen quotes that Steve Baker used:

Art as Object

Art Can't change anything

Steve McQueen's Queen and Country seems to be far more than merely the object of the pro type stamps; and his campaign to try and make them into real stamps seems to suggest that art can change things - it can help people remember/realise the cost of war through commemorating the sacrifice of many ordinary service personnel.
