dc.description.abstractThe central purpose of this dissertation is to discuss different ways in which land and the broader natural environment has been used as a vehicle or medium in art-making, with a specific focus on the works of Jenny Cullinan and Lynne Hull and the candidate. The work centres on artworks that are in the landscape, of the landscape, in the earth, of the earth or predominantly concerned with ecological issues and the inter-relatedness of all living systems. It is argued that artworks included under the general appellation land or environmental art may be widely divergent in character, notwithstanding threads of commonality and convergence. In addition, the often fluid or ambiguous nature of the terminology associated with this area of investigation has necessitated some definition of key terms.en_US
