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.

Curwen Studio [2012-02-10]

Research VisitPosted by Richard Sat, February 11, 2012 11:37:06
It was good to be able to go on a guided tour of this fine art litho studio with a wide range of other people from NUCA [tutor, emeritus, and undergraduates]. It was exciting to discover the collaborations between the audio and a wide range of artists, including Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland and it was a thrill to see the original plates from some of those artists together with some of the prints.

It was interesting to learn about the three litho processes and the differences between them - how stone and zinc differ from photo/aluminium - the latter being offset - the former being direct contact [so the plates, like etching, have to be a mirror image of the desired print].

It was exciting to be given the opportunity to do a small stone litho project at NUCA and I am really looking forward to this and I am already beginning to reflect on potential ideas for my first litho print project.
