Richard Brooks - Reflective Journal

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 Tue, June 26, 2012 17:21:49
I was pleased to be able to see the Holmberg and Rafman show; especially as it had been featured in The Guardian earlier in the month.

The performance aspect: being greeted with -

Congratulations you are the most recent visitor

was both amusing and a little disconcerting; perhaps even detracting from my experience of the rest of the show as I became a little preoccupied with that phrase. However, that might have been the intention to disturb the "normal" encounter that the viewer as of a show, and it certainly had the overall impact of lifting my spirits.
