Artist researchers contribute to a vibrant culture of research led teaching in the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum at Moray School of Art, Scotland’s fifth major art school. Research active staff operate across a broad spectrum of fine art and textiles practice with research interest in a range of areas including:
- painting at the digital interface;
- poesis and spatial practice;
- the legacies of surrealism;
- medical visualisation and drawing;
- gender, natality and printmaking;
- photographic practice, writing and spectrality.
Moray School of Art also leads the Between Places visual arts research group, initiated by visual practitioners and academics across the university in the Cultural and Creative Industries. The group aims to undertake innovative enquiry into practices and ideas relating to place, landscape and language, alongside contemporary approaches to the art in and of the Highlands and Islands. The dispersed nature of the research group resonates with our interest in place as an embodiment of possibility: place as a juncture or nexus of people, culture, environment engendered by geographies of inward and outward migration.
The dynamic nature of the world requires that we think about landscape and place in terms of the temporal, recognising that place is fluid and mobile, a landscape continually inscribed with the vestige and trace of cultural activity. The dynamism of place in practice can also be considered in terms of dialogue, informed by the view that the dialogic, in the strongest sense, captures the idea that we are made in dialogue with others, and indeed in dialogue with different places.
