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.

It was good to recently watch a number of episodes of Simon Schama's BBC series A History of Britain. It was particularly striking to see parts of the Bayeux Tapestry - especially the segment which depicts a mother and child fleeing from their home which is being burnt by rampaging soldiers. This is particularly significant as it is perhaps the earliest depictions of the innocent victims of war which was later expanded by the like of Goya.
