                                                                                                                                                                                                                                despite bifurcations in the direction of abstract art – Impressionism Surrealism, Expressionism, Pop – representational art, with its evident demands on the artist – formal excellence, not just heat and heart – still inspires perhaps our foremost admiration 
 
perhaps it’s true however that still lifes, nearly by definition, are bloodless, as is to my mind, here again, this exquisite nevertheless “Teapot“, which reaches out to your intellect rather than to your emotions
 
it speaks of duty rather than love, tradition rather than innovation, a nostalgia for security, conformity, philosophy perhaps, and ultimately by inference faith and trust  
 
if you let your sense of taste do the talking
