Seek to render art by a way of self expression
On January 30, 2011, by Neculai Fantanaru

One day, I proposed master to look together at a photo of Caravaggio's famous painting, "Card Players" and to find errors. So I threw down the gauntlet, I challenged him to battle, a struggle with profound and beneficial implications. Such a challenge between two artists, one - whose skill was more polished over time, the other – who did not exercise enough his talent, but who manifested a strong sensitivity to everything beautiful and interesting, it meant a step forward to improve cooperation and collaboration between us.

Master did not seem worried at all and not even surprised by the idea. He replied thoughtfully, gentle, with a patronizing tone:

- I agree, but with one condition. You must first expose your point of view.

I looked carefully at the picture focusing my attention at absolutely all the details. Caravaggio as usually presented few characters in his paintings, but minutely detailed, often located in an obscure area.

I exposed my opinion across the color display, which I found a little too saturated, too gloomy. Green, blue, red, mauve or purple - my favorite colors were missing from the picture. Instead, were dominating shades of brown, black, orange, bricky and white. I always cherished a special admiration for the paintings full of life, of a cheerful color, like those painted by Jim Warren, Francois Boucher, by Salvador Dali or by Bosch.

Momentarily, my teacher examined my face as would be read a journal, and then said:

- You should know, Nicu, that sometimes a mixture of colors merely loads the picture in a useless and annoying way. Colors not always give expression and image force. Important is what the painting expresses - in that you have to be careful because the painting enables the painter to express himself.

Leadership: Can you outline an art that gradually turns into science, so that the viewer’s image does not detach from the concept: “slowly savor the inner experience of a great life”?

An art that gradually turns into science is an act of creation that does not imply the criterion of resemblance, thus, one that cannot fit into templates, from which a unique concept always emerges whose content constantly evolves. The profound meanings of this art must have as a correspondent in this true concept that part of the image that the viewer wants to remember, prioritizing an interiorized world, a story about the difficult path of maturation or a life lesson.

Just as a painter expresses his art through his compositions - so and you, as a leader, have to express through your leadership an art in which to exercise your influence, an art that is in line with your inner states, which reflect your ideas, thoughts and feelings.

Get proof that the leadership you promote expresses your values, otherwise you will not be able to put your most relevant and useful abilities. Get proof that your leadership is a living art of beauty, sincere, based on understanding, which can integrate into any environment, but without "loading" it with too much pressure, too many tasks and responsibilities - otherwise it could to be hard to accept.

Your leadership must have the same performances as a digital camera - to be intelligent, easy to use, and affordable in performances, designed for everyday use - otherwise nobody will share your high ideals.

Leadership: Can you express your art through your own model of rationality so that you can capture an inner experience that can also be seen “from the outside”?

An inner experience seen “from the outside”, stretching in a linear trajectory of the development of a knowledge of a certain theme, offers the possibility of an analysis of the intrinsic powers of significance and symbolization of the existential fragments that make up a certain human facet.

Thus, the rationality with which you instill your creation and one that will guide your imagination must introduce the ability that allows you to recognize an ideal of your own being in an original way, which entitles it to be classified as one of the most important examples of art in an edifying tryptic: permanence, transparency, and affectivity.

Search continually for new ways of expression (like a talented artist) that would generate in the consciousness and in the mentality of people around the feeling of harmony, cordiality and mutual trust. And a very powerful way of expression is your own model. People will borrow from you your attitude, your physiology, they will imitate your way of working, and in other words they will adopt that atmosphere existing in your leadership.

In my book, "Performance in leading" I wanted to mention several times that almost always rises to the height of the model followed. In other words, people need a model by which to orient, to follow and to conduct activities in accordance with it.

Give people the expected "food" and they will follow you anywhere. If you do not feel that you exist in their soul means that the method by which you express your art, the way you send your message, ordering plans and putting them into practice, is flawed. It means that your art, which strongly reflects your inner states, not even remotely reflects their preferences. It means that your art has no moral and ethical meanings, spiritual and emotional, and it is unable to guide the spirits to achieve a common goal, so that is an expressionless, dull, without perspective and without "color".

To display art through your own way of expression means to turn the act of creation into a revelation of the particular aspects of life, with its afferent experiences and troubles, with its joys and sorrows, with the constant balance between Light and Darkness, that will both shake and humanize the viewer.

Conclusion: The leadership raised to the rank of art is the one that has a particular expression that is simple to understand and easy to follow especially when the personal model of the leader is accepted.
