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.

This afternoon the tide was again very high, but the area was extreemly busy with dog walkers, families and shoppers, but no people fishing. Sepite it being calmer I found more items than in many of the recebt weeks. It thus sturck me that it is hard to predict the quantity or type of items found just from the tide and state of the sea - it is far more complex than that - again this seems to me to have resonances with the complexities of the migration and trafficking of people and the movement of refugees. As I gathered I was also reminded of a recent conversation with some of my peers about my work - and their rersponse that my separate bags of items for each occaision was creating a sort of diary.
