Biography

As a Professor and researcher in Fine Art, I am involved with undergraduate and postgraduate Fine Art students, PhD candidates and in facilitating and mentoring the development of staff research within the Department of Arts and Humanities at the University of Cumbria. I am committed to the principle that Fine Art, with its unique and ever-expanding set of methodologies has a special and important contribution to make to knowledge production and indeed in identifying how knowledge itself is constituted.

As an artist, in my own work my scope of interest spans Art and Ecology, Socially Engaged and Site-Specific Art and Art and Science. Since 2001 I’ve worked collaboratively with Icelandic artist Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir, building an international practice based on the complexity of human relationships to environment, in pursuit of which we’ve developed major projects at home, in Europe, Australia and the USA.

Currently, I am principal supervisor for four PhD students, Martin Fowler, Jackie Haynes, Aaron Tan and Jade Miners – and second supervisor to two PhD students, Jane Topping and Patti Lean (all by Fine Art Practice) based at the Institute of the Arts at the University of Cumbria.

I am currently engaged in a three-year period of research in Iceland and together with Prof Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir of the Iceland University of the Arts lead an arts-based project involving an extended team including folklorists, environmental and biological scientists and art curators. The project which commenced in 2019, received a major funding award by the Icelandic Research Council, RANNÍS.
