Abstraction : on ambiguity and semiosis in abstract painting
Daws, Joseph H. (2014) Abstraction : on ambiguity and semiosis in abstract painting. PhD by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.
Drawing on the fields of philosophy, phenomenology, art history and theory as well as the candidate's own painting practice, this PhD explores the nature of ambiguity and semiosis in contemporary abstract painting. The thesis demonstrates how the aesthetic qualities of pause and rupture, transition and slippage work emergently to break established clichés, habits and intentions in the experiencing of abstract painting and artistic practice.
