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.

It was good to see these 4 pieces in the lower gallery; which complimented the "Submerged-Spaces" show. A sense of occasion and anticipation was given by having to travel down to the underground lower gallery.

I was surprised at how well it worked having 3 multiscreen works in the same room with a large, single screen projected piece in the next room. The projected piece was the only one with an audio element, and although the sound bled into the other gallery space this did not really detract from meditating on those three works.

I enjoyed the show and was pleased with how the gallery space had been utilised to provide the physical and aesthetic space conducive to meditating on the works. Such a meditative space and encounter is how I aspire for much of my work to be encountered.
