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.

Research VisitPosted by Richard Thu, April 26, 2012 11:54:17
Last week, it was good to spend a morning here. I particularly liked the living room area where the viewer was encouraged to encounter the works in no particular order and to be drawn to whatever was of interest - as they would in had they visited the Sainsbury's residence.

The photographic and video works by Avi Gupta - There Is Here, I found very encouraging. |How he had made works in the domestic settings he had visited. I especially enjoyed the video which had very subtle elements of movement, but I found the transition between segments to be too abrupt for my personal taste - it disrupted my sense of meditation which, for me would have been better preserved by using slower, more gradual transitions.
