PhD Investigations

My PhD research at the School of Visual and Performing Arts,University of Tasmania, Launceston titled Fragments: Beyond the Object focused on the  temporal, spiritual and conceptual space that surrounds the physicality of the object and how the form and quality of an object can influence the reading and subsequent interpretation of that surrounding space. As background research I examined selected examples of Classical and Renaissance sculpture from an archeological and historical perspective. This research has assisted my contemporary art practice which uses digital media to manipulate elements of light and dark to create speculative propositions about the space  that lies beyond the object.
