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.

I have been fascinated to watch the three part channel 4 documentary All In The Best Possible Taste, which has documented GP as he conducted his research for making six large tapestries, The Vanity of Small Differences, about the remaining differences in British classes. I was particularly struck by how much he was influenced by relies paintings of the past and by the work of Hogarth, Particularly The Rakes Progress series of paintings [and etchings] - GP even, inspired by Hogarth, included a dog in each work.

I am hoping to be able to make time to be able to see the tapestries at the Victoria Miro in London next Thursday [28 June].
