Dr. Richard Gant

As an active researcher Richard's work has been field-based in both industrial and natural landscapes. As the BHP Fine Art Fellow (1993-96) his doctoral research centred upon the impact of Fine Art practice within an emergent Gas Terminal site in the UK. Current visual work explores the natural landscape through drawing-based autobiographical themes. As Fine Art Chair of Research at LJMU he has founded several international Fine Art staff exhibitions including See what you can do, (Singapore 2004), Simpatico (Shanghai 2002) and Synergy (Orebro, Sweden 2000). Text publication is an integral element of his research output. Post-doctoral papers reference PhD findings, which are centred upon motivation, a recent paper being presented at UCLA (Cultural Diversity Conference 2004).A further paper on Action learning for Fine Art students will be presented in Granada (Learning Conference 2005).He is actively engaged in promoting art in industrial contexts, using his derived motivational model (Gant 2002) to justify and quantify the positive effects of art to industry.
