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.

Ely Cathedral [Saturday 2012-04-14]

Research VisitPosted by Richard Thu, April 26, 2012 11:36:10
It was good to spend an afternoon in the Cathedral and to particularly meditate on the paintings by Anneke Kaai that were inspired by the psalms. I was though rather disappointed in their presentation - they were to the side of the main entrance - near the chapel on basic display boards - I think the works could have been far better displayed and could have been better used to transform the space like the iconography works at Liverpool Cathedral did a couple of years ago.

I enjoyed the large aluminium sculpture The Way of Life by Jonathan Clarke; this I found moving and uplifting.
