Career Summary

Biography

I have a long and evolving involvement in teaching, research and administration within the University of Newcastle (UoN). This commenced in 1989 when I was originally appointed Lecturer in Painting, Drawing & Art Education, on the Callaghan campus. I continued my sessional involvement at UoN from1992 until 1995 Lecturing (part-time), in Visual Arts and Art Education during which time I undertook an MFA at UNSW. I also taught painting part-time at COFA UNSW during 1994. In 1996 I was appointed full-time in a teaching and research function, jointly charged with the establishment of a new program in Fine Art on the Ourimbah Campus UoN. From 1996 until 2007 I was Lecturer in Fine Art & Course Co-ordinator 2D/3D studio areas, jointly responsible for the on-going development and maintenance of that BFA program. In 1999-98 and again in 2003 and 2007 I was appointed Program Convener Bachelor of Fine Art, Ourimbah Campus. While teaching at Ourimbah I concurrently contributed to RHD supervision over several years on the Callaghan campus. This intercampus involvement was recognised by the university via an adjunct lecturer appointment made concurrently in fine art within the School of Fine Art. In 2007 I relocated back into the Callaghan BFA program on a full-time basis where I have been on-going Course Co-ordinator in 2D studies. In addition to these teaching and administrative responsibilities, I successfully completed a PhD in Fine Art at UNSW within the prescribed time limit (2009) while at the same time working full-time as an academic. I was awarded an APA scholarship in 2000 for study in the PhD program and was also awarded an annual research grant in 2004, being the only fine art RHD award recipients in that year at the College of Fine Arts UNSW . My research achievements include innovative interdisciplinary research within the life sciences, as models for hybrid and transmedia art practices and research. This has been undertaken via collaborative art based research with scientists. It has entailed working within certified teaching and research laboratories within the life sciences as a new kind of artists studio. This has entailed numerous residencies in labs throughout Australia. These include, SymbioticA at The University of Western Australia (2001 & 2002). The Institute for Molecular Bioscience at The University of Queensland (IMB) (2008). The School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences at The University of Queensland (2010). The School of Environmental and Life Sciences at the University of Newcastle (2003-2010). To date I have been awarded eleven research project grants. My research is internationally recognised in numerous publications on the emergent genre of new media Biotech art. This includes being cited in the 2008 UoN Annual Research Report of noteworthy research, being the only full-time academic in the FEDUA in 2008 and also publication of my research images in the 2010 RHD Handbook UoN. My teaching philosophy is centred on student-centred learning and fostering experimental attitudes and individual approaches, through practice-based critical thinking. This means thinking through practice within a contemporary frame of theoretical reference. My research philosophy encompasses a practice-led model of creative inquiry, via the praxis of practice and theory. This also entails an engagement with transdisciplinary attitudes, materials and processes. My interests here include remediated/extended notions of painting, experimental drawing and installation as agencies of expression. I have delivered or had published eleven papers/essays on interdisciplinary Biotech art since 2001-2010. I also maintain an ongoing active internationally recognised practice, having exhibited in six international specifically invitational and curated exhibitions within USA & Europe and seven invitational-curated international exhibitions within Australia since 2002. I have overseen the successful completion of eight RHD students in Fine Art primarily as co-supervisor. I was a founding member of the ArtsHealth Research Practice Centre UoN (2006).

Research Expertise
Practice-led critical research centered on transdisciplinary models. 1. Specifically, interpreting the use of contemporary genetic recombinant DNA technology models to develop new art based on recombinant processes and new transgenic art media . 2.Investigation into a new in between state at a molecular level, a proto-animated condition using inanimate recombinant non-coding DNA as the agency for expression. This includes intron DNA and non -coding RNAs as materials and models for art. 3. Considering art based interpretations of inanimate recombinant non-coding DNA and RNA as new biologically compatible semi-ready mades. 4. New visualisations /cultural representations of identity using gmo drawing media and installation. 4.Contemporary notions of extended field or remediated painting.
