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.

The maid (Le nana)

I really enjoyed watching this film yesterday; for me it was a brilliantly made, nicely restrained film. It was a great exporation of the human condition, relationships, healing and the tranformative power of true compassion and care.

The careful use of dialogue with well chosen visual points of view with long cuts provided an intimate, contemplative study reminiscient of the work of Dogme 95 and Lars Von Trier [especially "Dogville"(2003)].
