Richard Brooks - Reflective Journal

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.

Tate Modern [Sat 2012-01-28]

Research VisitPosted by Richard Tue, January 31, 2012 21:21:27
This was a fantastic but somewhat overwhelming evening - especially following the productive day - so much so that I am still trying to process it all.

The Highlights included:

Tacita Dean - Film

Poetry & Dream - work by surrealists and others who valued the power of dreams and the unconscious. - It was good to see a pile of Ai Weiwei's sunflower seeds at close quarters.

States of Flux - a fascination with change, modernity, everyday life. - especially room 10 Architecture & Power.

Photography: New Documentary Forms - I especially enjoyed the work by Mitch Epstein and Guy Tillim.
