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.

NUCA Gallery "You Are Here" - Lance Wyman

Research VisitPosted by Richard Mon, June 04, 2012 16:57:57
It was good to be able to spend some time engaging with this iconic work, the show had a strong emphasis on LW's work for the Mexico 1968 Olympics and has been generally well received - including being featured by the BBC.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this design show; I was impressed by the curation, installation and presentation. In particular the fact that a number of the logos were installed directly on to the wall, rather than a [framed] print being hung on the wall seemed to make the show far more engaging. The show seemed to me to have a good natural flow and the collection of work and their display worked together extremely well to virtually make an installation piece in it's own right.
