ART TALK with Tracy Stern, Interviewed by Kipton Cronkite
Q: Who is your favorite artist on KiptonART.com? Why?
A: "Jon Handel captures the allure of locks and keys in his artwork and is my favorite artist on KiptonART. I have an long-term affinity for locks and keys and remember studying how Dali portrayed women as the lock and men as the key. As a collector of antique keys and tea caddies, I have a deep appreciation and understanding. Historically, tea was a prized possession made specifically for wealthy families. Servants were not allowed to serve tea. Typically, the lady of the house would wear the key on a string and tuck it in her corset which she could access when tea was served. From Tiffany & Co. and Hermes locks and keys, they have always fascinated me."
