What lies behind us and lies before us are small matters compared to what lies right to our faces.

Emperor's new clothes
"Emperor Haute Couture" -- Margaret Sutherland
My hat is off for Margaret Sutherland for her wonderful usage of cynicism and symbolism, however, I might add that she missed the opportunity to paint one of the suits peeling him a grape... I don't usually 'get' art and it even more seldom 'sings' to me. This piece is deserving of the Fine Arts Museum of Ottawa, or maybe the entrance of parliament.
