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.

Screen Printing 2012-06-21

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Tue, June 26, 2012 17:42:22
I found it most therapeutic to spend the afternoon screen printing.

It was good to practice - both mixing the dye and medium to get the right tonality; and the technical aspects of making prints. I was pleased that I was able to further develop my technical skills.

By spending the afternoon making prints I felt somewhat demotivated and re-energised after struggling rather for most of the day.

This reminded me of the personal importance of making work to my practice and more general wellbeing.
