Research overview

My research project proceeds from the conviction that post-war British art needs to be studied as part of a transnational cultural field. It seeks to prise British art of the post-war period away from a narrative that traces modernism alongside a distinct notion of ‘Britishness’, challenging previous historical claims that link nationalist ideologies with modernity. Alternatively, my thesis will explore how the language of modernism was not monolithic, but offered a transnational aesthetic that echoed notions of independence and de-colonisation, and how an engagement with abstract and formal experimentation facilitated this.
