Still not sure I could explain it though

What is love and what is art and what is love of art ? God only knows. All I know is who and what I love and what art (I think ) I love or at least what art moves or excites or pacifies me . But I do know I love the work of Stanley Spencer . I went back to his gallery today and his paintings make me both laugh and cry .. I am drawn to his ‘The Last Supper’ – just can’t stop staring at their feet ,the pattern ,the shape ,the humour,the sadness . He wrote this and I think it is the basis of what I think art is about …” Love is the essential power in the creation of art and love is not a talent. Love reveals and more accurately describes the nature and meaning of things than any mere lecture on technique can do.”
