INSPIRING ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD
Spring - 2015 inprint.mag.com
Art creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. The fascination of art has to do with time. Visual art is the quickest of all serious cultural forms to make its full nature clear to the beholder. It's worth dwelling on the rapidity of art. It is conventional, in the moralizing rhetoric of the critic, to say Rembrandt repays a lot more time than most works of art - you can look at his pictures for a lifetime and still find new depth in them. But what if this is not the most important thing about great art? What if it's the instant effect that matters? So it's not always true that great art takes a long time to appreciate and instantaneous art is shallow. In fact, some of the most revered paintings can be appreciated much more quickly than video art - which has, as I've already conceded, brought narrative time into the gallery. Why is time-based art so popular? Does it seem more important because it takes up time? Personally, I agree with Leonardo da Vinci. The most magical thing in art is the instant and complete image.

Our Message The transformation of a team happens in the hands of great imaginative leaders, not in indulgent knowledge seekers. While some form of education is generally a prerequisite for progress, we need to understand the balance between knowledge and imagination. Today’s leader should understand both past and present experiences of his/her team, and use that knowledge to cultivate creative progress and imaginative learning. As Einstein suggests, it is our imagination that will propel us to great strides in moving our teams and businesses forward. So how do you imagine yourselves as a different team? By setting BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) to stimulate progress and guide your team through the process of creating a Vision and Mission statement. This creative procedure can help encourage your team to think of themselves and opportunities in new ways. When we can focus people on what they can become, we see small changes in the otherwise mundane. Having a Mission and Vision statement clarifies a team’s purpose and allows them to confidently contribute to the creative process. Basically, it puts all workers on the same page and allows them to work in synergy. A mission is simply asking yourself, “what do I need to do everyday to be successful?” While a vision statement is more aligned with, “if we do what we need to everyday, we will have succeeded.” It is important to reference your business’s mission in moments of confusion – the ideal mission statement will refresh you of your business’s goals and put you back on the right track. Give your teams the creative power to solve business challenges by providing clear and concise Mission and Vision statements and letting their imagination handle the rest. “LOVE ART AND LOVE INPRINT MAGAZINE AS MUCH AS WE DO”

DESIGN PHOTOGRAPHY FOOD FASHION ILLUSTRATION LITERATURE PEOPLE For the greatest inspiration of Art and Artists, the priority is to "lose oneself." Ultimately, an artist is motivated to realize that Higher Self, the completely inspired Self every artist know in their moments of pure expression.. the making of love that motivates pure inspiration. This is when what IS is! These are our spires of inspiration. True words of motivation are like best religious inspirational sayings. This almost incomprehensible motivation embodies the I AM of Moses, the burning bosom, the undressing of flesh to reveal a naked soul, as if touching and tasting dewdrops of spilt blood. Emotional scars upon souls often scream within chalices of pain; nonetheless, tongues can reach hitherto heights, waxing wicks of flight seeking to soar as the light embodies the words of motivation herself.

George Barbier Regarded as one of the finest French illustrators of the early
twentieth century, George Barbier was born in 1882 in Nantes,
France. He is famously associated with the Art Deco movement
and aside from illustration, he became widely acclaimed for the
design of costumes, jewelry, wallpaper, glass, and more. His work
with various magazines such as Vogue cemented his reputation as a leading design artist.
Little is known of Barbier’s personal life, but it is known that he attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in the atelier of Jean Paul
Laurens in 1907. In 1911 at the age of twenty-nine Barbier
experienced his first exhibition which launched the artist’s career. Barbier’s success began with book and magazine illustration —especially in the area of French haute couture. His exceptional fashion illustrations led to working relationships with such magazines as Gazette du Bon Ton, L’Illustration, Femina, Le Jardin des Dames et Des Modes, Vogue, and La Vie Parisienne. He famously created the fashion—he did not simply draw fashionably clad models. A considerable portion of his illustrations additionally appeared in special collector’s books
InPrint | Spring 2015
which were popular in France. As a famous French artist, Barbier was part of a fashionable group nicknamed “The Knights of the Bracelet” for their mode of dress and flamboyant lifestyles. During the 1920s Barbier famously collaborated with the artist Erte for costumes and set designs for Les Follies Bergere. He even had success in Hollywood designing costuming for Rudolph Valentino which was praised in the New York Times. Barbier died at the height of his popularity in 1932 at the age
of fifty. As a popular mainstream artist, his work was known in both Europe and America. Aside from his design work, Barbier also wrote influential articles and essays on the topic of art and design. Some of Barbier’s most renowned works are illustrations for books such as Fetes Galantes by Paul Verlaine and works by Charles Baudelaire. The artwork of Barbier is highly collectible today. Among his most famous illustrations are Au Lido (1924), Au Revoir (1920), La Terre (1926), Le Feu (1926), Arlequin (1914), Alcyone (1923), La Danseuse Aux Jets d’eau (1924-1925), and L’Oiseau Volage (1914). Barbier’s style, which has been compared to the British illustrator Aubrey Beardsley for its simplicity of outline, is best known for its depiction of elegant women in fashionable and often exotic attire. His figures are frequently exiting theaters, standing beside luxurious automobiles, or lounging near fountains. Barbier’s art helped to depict the lavish world of the Art Deco style. His legacy resides in his elegant images of haute couture beauty.

more about the artist
Always an artist in some capacity, Cardin started out as a ballet dancer, then earning her B.A. in Art History from Florida Atlantic University, followed by an M.A. in Communications from Lynn University. She went on to hold several professional jobs in the arts, while continuing to produce personal and professional photography projects as a freelancer. In 2010 Cardin focused on pursuing her fine arts career full-time. in low light situations, which is a Do You Have A Favorite Walk big part of my work. Around Lens...If So What Is It?

In general, during a session, how many pics would you say you take to find “the right one”? That varies a great deal depending on how much I’ve pre-planned. Some projects are so planned out I know exactly what I want each image to look like, so I will shoot as little as 50 images. If the idea is a bit more abstract I’ll shoot closer to 200 images where I’m experimenting with a variety of poses and lighting. When I’m shooting models I tend to shoot the most, usually around 800. The self-portraiture involves so much more, so it always produces less images in the end. Are you a self-taught photograSpring 2015 | InPrint

pher or did you have a mentor that showed you the ropes? I studied fine art during my undergraduate studies, though I ultimately majored in art history. But I would say the bulk of my photography knowledge is self-taught. I’ve been in photography since I was a teenager, so I’ve spent a great deal of time reading everything I can about it, and experimenting constantly. I didn’t have a particular mentor, but I’ve been greatly inspired by all types of artist, especially painters.
reer, so I stopped focusing on what I didn’t have and began to work with what I did have, in this case a cheap lighting kit, a basement, and myself. What began as just a way to practice and experiment became my passion and focus. When I don’t shoot self-portraiture I tend to shoot other artists, especially dancers. I look for people who are genuine and comfortable with letting go and showing true emotion during a shoot.. Do you rely on lighting (natural, or artificial), or do you rely on darkroom/computer manipulation? I rely on artificial light for most of my work, with most of my scenes being very dimly lit. I go for a lot of emotion from in my work, so I keep the scenes and lighting pretty simple, keeping the focus on the figure. I try to get the right settings in camera and while I’m shooting, and rely on Photoshop more for conceptual work and creating a mood with textures and overlays.
I had always wanted to do it professionally, but it was more about reaching a place where I let go of fears and where I decided to truly give everything I could to making it a reality. It’s a tough path to choose, and requires you to move past fears and insecurities and believe in your work wholeheartedly. There are times when everyone is telling a photographer that a picture is good, but some am not satisfied with it. How do you know that a photo is really good? If I like it and feel something then I know it’s good. I’m by far my own worst critic and often am not satisfied even when others like it. I know what went into it and how it was shot and edited, so it takes more for me to be impressed. If I can look at my image and forget all the behind the scenes work, then I know it’s special.
How do you decide on locations & subjects? Most of my work is in studio, which I never thought I’d do. I started out doing travel and architectural photography, so I never imagined being inside with artificial light. But having been a dancer I naturally got into figurative work several years ago, which I fell in love with and now can’t imagine doing anything Before you put your work “out else. I got into self-portraiture out of there”. Do you have it critiqued by necessity.
