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.

9 Oct 2012 Thought for the Day

It was interesting to find this reflection on the vandalism of one of Rothko's "seagram murals" - especially after the discussion at NUCA the previous week.

One of the questions that Lucy Winkett poses that I think is particularly telling and relevant to my own practice:

If an artist themselves makes something designed to provoke a reaction, can such a reaction be objected to?
