A Cosmopolitan Landscape: Development Of A Body Of Paintings That Explore And Expand Upon The Shared Tropes Of Figuration In The Work Of Giovanni Bellini And Shen Zhou, Harrison See

Theses : Honours

This creative honours project is a practice-led investigation into the painted figural landscape, particularly with the aim of identifying and exploring mutuality within the enduring artistic traditions of Chinese and Western painting.

Works by artists such as Elodie La Villete, Charles Cottet, André Dauchez and Mathurin Méheut who lived long term on the coast are put into dialogue with the pressed ...

This lack of conscious questioning limits holistic development in design practice. This research reflects on myself as a designer developing a response ...
