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.

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Tue, March 06, 2012 18:12:52

It was good to spend a day working on my screen-prints, but it was somewhat frustrating to still be getting used to the technical issues and I was unable to make a print that I was completely satisfied with - so I am hoping to spend some more time working on further prints next Thursday. I am also intending reviewing all the print I have made so far to review the composition, eg where to position the bottle and the size of gap between the coastal image and the text notice, and the choice of colours so that I can try to discern the best way forward for my next printing session. It was good to have the resonance of using newsprint to make a number of prints observed by one of my peers on the course.

It was also good to view the exhibition venue for the Bishop's prize at Norwich Cathedral and to learn that there will be a show reel for the selected video works. It was also good to see the display cabinets and I could visualise that this could be an options for displaying some of the found objects.
