This paper revolves around the questions raised by Jonathan Dronsfield with the idea of 'theory as practice' as the underlying principle for the PhD in Art. Within the field of practices possible for this degree, Christopher Frayling, defined two possible methodologies: research to art and through art. The notion of theory as practice will be assessed according to these criteria and illustrated with two examples of PhD in art research from around the world. Three examples from Hong Kong will show how research and art making can be integrated into praxis undertaken at doctorate level. Although it remains important to define the requirements for a PhD in Art as a way to create new knowledge, praxis and its 'writability' are more important, describing the creative process through a reflection manifesting itself into a body of work and a piece of writing that cannot be separated.
