This project will explore the work of seven contemporary Australian artists, tracing the creative development, sources and the conceptual framework of their art. In particular it will analyse a select body of work with reference to art and its relationship to spirituality. Each artist is inspired by crossculturalism and each have investigated thier own spiritual traditions, particulary within the contexts of Aboriginal Australia and Asia. This project will advance our understanding of cross-culturalism and sprituality in the visual arts. Its findings will be communicated in a book and conference papers.
