Heroes & harmony

Pollard, Linda Kristine (2011) Heroes & harmony. Professional Doctorate thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The first practice-led research project 'Heroes of the Club', through collaboration with business and community, involved portraying the stories on canvas of heroes of the Australian Surf Life Saving movement. The second project 'Crossing the intersection… art and life' researched a post-modernist approach to a fusion of the aesthetics of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. This study resulted in a body of work 'Long Playing' which sought to harmoniously reconcile two apparent polarities of style and context between high and low art characteristics, through personal narrative and with reference to artistic tradition.
