Abstract

This Master thesis explores the art and life of Christopher Pease. Written in the form of a monograph, I explore Pease's life and a selection of his artworks, focusing on his paintings connected to Western Australia's south coast and his Nyoongar heritage. The reader will gain an understanding about the politics of Aboriginal identity within an Australian postcolonial context and about Pease's identity in relation to his Australian upbringing. I provide an analysis of how Pease's art is linked to Western modes of painting, and extending existing scholarly research on Nyoongar nation art and cultural practices.
