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.

Picture Making - 2012-11-13

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Tue, November 13, 2012 20:43:56
It has been good to be able to concentrate on making new pictures today and then subsequently reviewing and organising the pictures and making initial minor adjustments before selecting the preferred photograph for each vista.

- in the morning I worked in an urban environment wandering as a flaneur particularly observing evidence of where the homeless had taken shelter

- in the afternoon I worked on the coast to observe the beautiful pre dusk light on the beach

I am still exploring how best to select and present such contrasting vistas as dyptichs; which juxtapose the fragility of the human condition [including the issues of inequity] with the sublime landscape. As I reflect I am reminded of how easy it is to be distracted by one and not have due regard for the other.
