Art Practice as Research – Inquiry in the Visual Arts by Graeme Sullivan (2010)

Well, this flies in the face of Scrivener.

As an object of study, an artwork is an individually and culturally constructed form and thus can be examined as a source of knowledge.

…to propose a viable way to conceptualise art practice as research requires the construction of robust and defensible frameworks for considering the relationship between the theories and practices that inform how art can assume its potential as a creative and critical form of human inquiry, agency, and production. such structures would be expected to cater for different theories and inquiry … A broad set of outlines would also serve as a reference for theory construction that is part of the research process as experiences, observations and reflexive understandings are analysed and interpreted. p. 99
