|Abstract: ||The paper will consider instances of the interweaving of theory and practice
within drawing research, in order to suggest potential approaches to the
development of hybrid methodologies in fine art practice-led research. The paper
is written from the position of two current supervisors and creative research
collaborators: Deborah Harty and Phil Sawdon (aka humhyphenhum from 2007),
who historically were supervisee/supervisor.
The paper will make reference to Harty’s experience as a PhD researcher
undertaking practice-led research within a fine art context (completed 2010) and
supervised by Sawdon. A discussion of Harty’s hybrid methodology: action
theoria, will provide an instance of the interweaving of theory and practice.
Action theoria incorporates the cyclical and iterative process of action research –
intention; action; review – with a process of theoria – the dialogue of both
practice and theory’s relationship to a given subject matter.
Following this, the paper will discuss the interweaving of action theoria into
humhyphenhum’s collaborative research methodology: meaningful play. This
interwoven methodology evolved during collaborative practice-led research
projects from 2005 to the present. The paper will make reference to several of
humhyphenhum’s projects as a means to identify the interweaving of theory and
practice within collaborative research.
As current supervisors (2015), the paper will conclude with a discussion of how
reflection on these experiences has informed our position as supervisors. We will
consider, for example, how this has impacted on our ability, as individual
supervisors, to offer insights into the interweaving of theory and practice, without
defaulting to the position of compelling our supervisees to adopt our
