Express your art through what you are to be understood in its depth
On January 30, 2011, by Neculai Fantanaru

Master was a person with whom I accustomed, a very pleasant one, which always had a positive influence on me. And who really appreciated life, deep things in it, and the beauty of a sunset or a sunrise, or a mountain landscape, reading a book, but mostly and above all he appreciated the long and quiet outdoor walks with his wife, Liana, a woman of an admirable beauty, sensitivity and simplicity - his most ardent admirer.

The master's character and personality came out in a big way and from his self-portraits. As just as the remarkable Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn, the master often represented himself with a great delicacy in many ways: thinker or dreamer always enveloped in an air of magic and fantasy. Often, it seemed to be surrounded by a halo that far surpassed that of an actor, leaving his mark in a pleasant way, making himself noticed more through the imaginary in which his entire being seemed to be framed and constituted the essence of a superior spirit.

I was more impressed by his self-portraits than his landscapes, in their primary stages, starting from a simple geometric shape (pure form) – considered by the psychology of form as an a priori of formal imagination. These were done with a craftsmanship worthy of envy, allowing me the opportunity to think what he thought when he was painting. They made me reflect on his humanity that had never lost its meaning. And, admirably, on the hidden feelings of his soul, on his wisdom and virtues.

- It’s a pretty nice picture, I told him one day.

- Yes, my master said, with a rather wistful tone. But, unfortunately it’s not very good because did not deliver my deep feelings as I wanted. (It was obvious that he was not quite convinced of this. He was an honest and open person. He did not try to soothe me by telling me something else than the truth.)

Leadership: Can you broaden the horizons of appreciation of art in an authentic way through the effect produced by your motivation to experience the creative role of reality on the viewer?

Reality is the mirror that draws attention to what is reflected in it, but what is seen is constantly changing. What really matters is on the other side of the mirror, in the context of the life you live in the world in the eyes of a caregiver who carefully measures your every gesture, every word, every step.

A work is perfect only if it transmits those deep feelings the artist faces. To believe in something you have to perceive what that thing is, the nature of that state, to experience it through a sort of revelation that modifies the vision of man and his existence. That is why the reality reflected by a painting can be an identification with the absent gap in the artist’s existence, or it can be an identification with a thought that strives to reveal everything a priori, becoming an emanation of a generous sensitivity.

The leadership that you promote conditions your approach to other people. It is the creation that gives expression to your image in the world. And if the image that you create is inconsistent with reality, with the depth of your own being, you will not be able to penetrate the world of other people, to influence and to lead them in a new direction, at least not for long.

Leadership is an art that springs from within and that everyone has, spurred by a strong motivation, inlying. It means, first, to be honest with yourself and then with others: what you think should be in harmony with what you feel and how you act. This gives you a sense of inner strength; it makes you be happy of yourself, satisfied with your life. This is also the superior conception of happiness.

And this feeling of inner strength that you deliver through your leadership develops very fast the flow of communication with others. The feelings become easily contagious: sadness or joy, pain or pleasure, are easily delivered from person to person and prone to action. That's why it is so important for your whole being to inspire a pleasant and beneficial mood that to produce a good impression among those around you as their soul to be filled with joy and fulfillment.

Leadership: Do you need to constantly seek new artistic means for the best expression of your essence in the sense of demonstrating the valuable experience of the mastery of capturing a reality rendered to the viewer through a metaphor?

The depth given by the sediment of the process of creation is the heart received by a painting in order to come to life. Learn to grow within yourself through what you transmit as a metaphor in which feeling, sensation, impressiveness, and instinct are stronger than reason, otherwise you will never grow in the eyes of others. Express your art through what you feel, through what you are, in order for it to be understood in the depth of a comparison from which result the eventual differences between originality and kitsch.

Just as a painter searches in his pictures color relationships, which settles in well-drawn contours, demonstrating a constructive and decorative color-sense - so and you, as a leader, must seek to be consistent with other people, to spread out through your words, by your behavior, through activities you perform, the results you get - thoughts, feelings, mood, proving the power of penetration of your soul.

For people to notice your instinctual genuine force of your art, they need to penetrate into the depths of your own being, led by their own impulses. The more people know your art the better they know you.

The projection of your creation into a defining reality, penetrated with subjectivism through an emphasis on the depth of the soul, must update the message of a masterpiece designed to sensitize the viewer’s gaze and thinking by comparing it with a metaphoric role from which the concept of mirroring in the human microcosm must emerge.

Conclusion: The ideas and thoughts of a leader are foreseen as far as he externalizes them to be known in their depth and to be fully understood. Only in this way the leader will get the cooperation from others. Just as people can be known by the way they write, by the way they open a door - so the leader will be "read" by others, by his way of being. And any inconsistency senses between the thoughts, ideas, feelings, more or less externalized, will be punished. The "Fake" will be discovered sooner or later.
