Cv/Visual Arts Research

The survey began in April 1988 as interviews with artists, jewelers, fashion designers and furniture restorers, based at Old Loom House in Whitechapel, launching a quarterly review  Cv Journal of Art and Crafts. Cv Journal was published to 1992 and the collection of interviews and features provided the foundation of Cv Visual Arts Research archive and subsequent publications.

Cv/VAR archive includes analytic essays on examples of Western art including: The Trinity by Masaccio at Santa Maria Novella, Florence, Vermeer’s The Maidservant and Woman with a Balance; Velázquez court portraits, Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Francis Bacon, Anthony Caro and Alison Wilding, Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol, with reviews of exhibitions in public and private galleries.

 

The  collection of over two hundred pieces reveals strands that bind the continuum of classic and contemporary art.
