We are objective.
In recent decades the expansion of the art world has made galleries bigger, faster and more business minded than ever before. The traditional model of the gallery-artist relationship over several decades has been replaced by a business structure that must balance the financial welfare of the gallery itself on a more important level than the interests of individual artists and collections. This is one of the reasons JSVCprojects has developed its unique position working collaboratively with galleries to protect and develop artists interests. Our special relationship with major collectors functions in much the same way.
We are thinkers.
We believe in content and the way this drives the intrinsic value of great art — in the relevance of art history and the vital experience of looking at art from all periods by artists of many backgrounds.
We are collaborators.
We believe that making great art and working with the greatest living artists and collectors is a serious and lifelong practice; and we understand the methodology behind working with artists, as well as the passion and patience needed for great collecting.
We are knowledgeable.
We believe that building an art collection is not shopping nor should it be purely investment-driven. We champion a studied approach to value, understanding art market forces over time.
We continue to discover.
At the same time, we believe in expertise, knowledge and connoisseurship gained over four decades, whether in relationship to translating the work of young artists, supporting those in mid-careers or recognising artists in late great periods of their work.
