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 Mon, January 30, 2012 10:56:08
I had a fantastic day on Saturday, be able to conduct 3 different visits:

The Foundling Hospital in the morning;

Dickens and London, at The Museum of London, in the afternoon; and

Tate Modern in the evening.

It still feels as if three days were crammed into one and so I am currently still processing and unpacking it all. To assist in my ongoing reflections I am going to reflect on each of the individual visits in subsequent posts.

It was good that it was possible to allow some time and space between each visit so that I could be assimilate them and so that it did not all merge together. I found Dickens and London to be surpassingly crowded, given that it was timed admission by tickets costing over £5; but I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Tate Modern in the evening, which was well supported but not over crowded. It gave me somewhat of a thrill to spend a Saturday evening at Tate Modern, that remained open till 10pm.
