[Extract] The visual arts have drawn on practice-led research models significantly over the last two decades. Further to the methods of practice and hands-on discovery are issue-based practices that align with qualitative models from social science amongst other disciplines. The artist and artists in a research group become chameleons who adopt data collection strategies, models from the digital computer labs and atelier studios, and inquiry from multi-disciplines.

Alta-modernist and Postmodernist theorists influential for the visual arts in the twenty-first century include: Bourriaud (2002), Deleuze (1994), Gibson (2009) and Pollock (2003). These theorist-arts-writers provide insight for methodologies in visual arts practice aligned with qualitative research. The artists and art work they discuss contribute to a discourse about changing culture and further understanding of flexible methodological structures for new ways of seeing and recognising visual literacy.

In the supervision process for Creative Arts candidates at Honours and postgraduate levels, planning diagrams from Social Sciences are extremely useful to assist in the explanation of how the qualitative methodological process can be developed from within their own practice-led research.
