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 18:16:27
I have been struggling somewhat for the last few weeks; especially the last couple of weeks. I have had significantly less motivation and have been feeling more anxious. I have still been thinking about how to develop my work - video or print or 3d. I have continued to document instances of paused TV/DVD etc in my own domestic setting - although this has been largely on BBC iplayer etc since 20-2-12. I am still trying to discern the best way to work the various element together, of found objects, documenting the found objects and the act of gathering, the images of the coast and the documenting of paused tv; my screen printing are an attempt to combine some of these elements.

I has also been good to watch the culture show special about David Hockney's Bigger than life exhibition covering the whole of the Royal Academy; I found it especially interesting to learn something of how he had made the large multi panel paintings and videos. It was also enlightening to hear his intent behind the making of these landscape works - that it makes the viewer contemplate scenes that would not usually be especially noteworthy.
