Victoria Danville: Textile sculpture

Victoria Danville’s process is simple, she uses a range of traditional methods like sewing, weaving, knitting and printing, but with different more obscure materials to give a unique and original artwork each time.

In this interview, Victoria talks to us about the various influences in her life that have shaped her artistic practice. We learn why unusual fabrics excite her and how the environment where she lives in France gives her daily inspiration.

Scenic Alberta Circular Suncatchers 2017

Earlier this year we were asked if we could make 2 small circle suncatchers that represented Alberta. The one on the left depicted Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, the foothills and Alberta’s Provincial Flower the Alberta Rose.

The other one on the right depicted Alberta’s farming lands, our rolling hills along with an Alberta Wheat Pool Elevator, unfortunately few of these prairie sentinels remain on our landscape.

Both circles measured approximately 6 inches in diameter and were surrounded with a decorative brass edging.  After soldering both had black patina applied, cleaned and then polished.

These were taken to England as gifts by our client, and we were told that they were very well received and appreciated.

Newly attributed portrait by Lucas Cranach the Elder goes on display at Windsor Castle

The painting Portrait of a Lady and her Son, c.1510–40, recently discovered to be by the German master Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553) and his workshop is on public display at Windsor Castle from today. The painting was a Christmas gift from Queen Victoria to Prince Albert in 1840 and is part of the Royal Collection. The double portrait shows an unidentified consort of a Prince-elector of the Holy Roman Empire and her son, their hands clasped together. Although acquired by Queen Victoria as a work by the Renaissance artist, by the early 20th century the painting was considered to be the work of Franz Wolfgang Rohrich (1787–1834). The composition has an intimacy which was thought to have been Rohrich’s invention and uncharacteristic of Cranach’s style. Rohrich was a prolific imitator of Cranach and produced over 40 versions of this portrait. He sold them as original works by Cranach, and they can be foun

World's only particle accelerator dedicated to art revs up at the Louvre in Paris

The world’s only particle accelerator dedicated to art was switched on at the Louvre in Paris Thursday to help experts analyse ancient and precious works. The 37-metre (88-foot) AGLAE accelerator housed underneath the huge Paris museum will be now be used for the first time to routinely study and help authenticate paintings and other items made from organic materials. The Centre for Research and Restoration of the Museum of France (C2RMF) — which is independent of the Louvre — has spent 2.1 million euros ($2.5 million) overhauling and upgrading the machine, which can determine the chemical make-up of objects without the need to take samples. “Up to now we almost never analysed paintings because we were afraid the particle beam might change the colours” when it hit the pigments in the paint, director Isabelle Pallot-Frossard told AFP. The AGLAE works by speeding up helium and hydrogen nuclei to speeds of between
