Contemporary visual art is a field distinguished by the rolling evolution of forms and practices that are indicative of the time and place from which they derive. The study of the artistic practice of individual artists working in the field of contemporary visual art reveals that their art emerges at the interface between practice and life. Informing artworks is a multiplicity of factors across the social and material environment of the artist’s world. Writing about this exchange in an accessible manner generates an appreciation of contemporary visual art and the textured landscape from which it emerges. The adoption of a conceptual framework from a work of literary criticism serves to illuminate particular qualities of both art and artist.
