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.

Over the weekend it was interesting to see a programme about all the plastic flotsam and jetsam in the pacific ocean and how the polymers are being broken down to form a "plastic soup". It was distressing to see the extent and how impractical it is to readily clean up what is already there and yet this is still being added to. It was awful to see the strand line of plastics on the pacific island - especially to learn that it would be washed out to sea again at the next high tide.

However, this did underline for me the importance of my current work, not only personally but also as a way of making a difference, both practically and as a prophetic voice - speaking out!
