INSPIRING ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD
Summer - 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.

Alessandra Favetto PHOTOGRAPHER alessandrafavetto.com
Self-taught photo artist from Italy but living in Spain, Alessandra started her journey in photography and fine art in 2013 when she specialized in self portraiture images and surreal representations of animals and nature. Her inspiration comes from the observation of life and nature, from her inner thoughts and feelings, from looking behind and beyond everyday life as it appears and searching for answers to the usual existential questions. Her works are symbolic representations of her views and reflections of what she sees and perceives, translations of emotions, dreams, fears and feelings. Alessandra has won several international awards and participated in several exhibitions in Spain and Italy InPrint | Summer 2015

Born in Philadelphia in 1855, Cecilia Beaux was an important
female artist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Known primarily for her portrait paintings, Beaux achieved con-
siderable fame during her lifetime. Her works hang in some of the
world’s most prestigious museums such as the Musee d’Orsay and the Uffizi Gallery.
The youngest daughter of Jean Adolphe Beaux, Cecilia lost her
mother, Cecilia Kent Leavitt, as an infant; her mother died from puerperal fever when Cecilia was twelve days old. Her father returned
to France and Cecilia and her sister were raised by their maternal
grandmother and aunts. Most of their time was spent in Philadel-
phia. Beaux began art lessons with a relative when she was sixteen.
Two years later she obtained a post as a drawing teacher. In 1863, she had a work published in St. Nicholas Magazine after a brush with lithography lessons. In 1876, Beaux began studying at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Within the next decade, Beaux began to receive serious commissions for her work. Her painting, Les Derniers Jours d’Enfance, was awarded a prize for the best work painted by a female artist and the painting was subsequently shown at the Paris Salon. Although Beaux became a celebrated artist in Philadelphia,

she decided to embark on further studies in Paris. While her family was not initially happy about her decision to renounce marriage for an artistic career, they eventually supported her decision whole-heartedly. At the time Beaux arrived in Paris, the Impressionist painters were beginning to go their separate ways. Although the movement would significantly influence Beauxâ€™s near-contemporary Mary Cassatt, Beaux herself could not subscribe to its tenets. She, on the other hand, preferred to paint in a realistic style more akin to artists like John Singer Sargentâ€”an artist she would often favorably be compared to. Beaux would continue in the realist vein for the rest of her career even as artists like Matisse and Picasso would channel art in brand new directions. Upon her homecoming in 1889, Beaux worked diligently as an artist and even worked part of the year in New York. She received many commissions from clients along the east coast and would eventually paint a portrait of First Lady Edith Roosevelt and sketch President Roosevelt at the White House. Although Beaux did not achieve the great fame that Cassatt did, she did enjoy immense acclaim during her life and her work continues to

garner great respect among art critics and art historians. Beaux died in 1942 at the age of eighty-seven. Some of her most famous works include Sita and Sarita (1893-1894) and New England Woman (1895).

Working with elements from nature, pedestrian objects, speciallycommissioned photos, and scenes from his travels and neighborhood, he fuses these components into ethereal yet cohesive views that transcend their origins.

lex Garant studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada. Her oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait technique. Garant finds inspiration in early ink printing, vintage pop surrealism, baroque tapestries and retro kitsch. She uses patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as a way to engage the viewer into her imagery as you can see in her most successful paintings “The Queen of Double Eyes.” InPrint | Summer 2015

Ila Coronel Dark, dreamy and psychedelic photography by Ila Coronel. He artistically captures hidden and dark emotions. Inspired by a picture he did then he felt scared – artist realize he found the way to capture life. He takes picture of some exact psychological and emotional moment and after several sequences – he had a series of pictures that calculate time and feelings.“Human emotions could be photographed, if we are willing to show our-self – from the bones to the nerves, every pattern of speech in photography. Everything happens fast on an average day, but camera makes everything frozen and slow – whether it is good or bad, stinks or smells good, honorable or criminal” – Says Ila Coronel.
