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.

Experiment - painting on photos (2013-03-09)

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Sat, March 09, 2013 11:31:12
I am currently doing some experimental work of painting a noughts and crosses grid and then placing O & X in turn by using numbers 1 to 9 drawn from rummikub tiles. I have decided to use the colour vermillion because of it's resonances with blood and life. I have decided to use acrylics rather than watercolour because of its permanence and to avoid the resonance and reference of traditional spotting and colouring of photographs.
