Motivate Yourself and Get the Power H

ow can you motivate yourself to stick with our goals and keep following what you want, when life feels like it is working against you? Nothing is ever easy – you come across blockages and challenges all of the time that seem to make achieving these things in life difficult! You need to be able to motivate yourself, no matter what circumstances come your way. There are five simple steps:

1. Keep Focused – know what you want and dedicate an allocated amount of time to work out the steps to achieve what you want. The target can be a simple goal or it can be a longer term one; whichever it is, it still needs planning. 2. Keep Visualizing – imagine how it will feel to achieve your goal, how it feels to be a winner and have everything that you want. Make your subconscious mind understand how it feels to win and you will start to do things subconsciously to get there. 10

3. Keep Monitoring – assign some time each week to write down what steps you have been making to achieve your goal. Keep note of progress made and see what methods bring you closer to your target and what does not. This way you can allocate your time really efficiently. 4. Reward yourself – give yourself little treats when you reach each target. It could be some time off, a bag of crisps or a glass of your favourite tipple.

JEAN-MARC LOUIS Contemporary Art

B

orn in 1959, Jean-Marc Louis travelled a lot and he absorbed light, which will illuminate all of his artwork.

His long stay in Africa has immersed him into ochre and brown and these colours constitute the background of his paintings. Ancient canvas, cartons or sometimes the wood, will be the framework of material and as much heterogeneous as obsolete maps, media coverage removed from, old newspapers (we fancy to Read them) or plenty of tousled thread. Collages of diverse and varied materials are treated with lots of care, revealing to us timeless colours with patina, a little like Braque’s way. Compositions are always structured to a spatial burst, never random; we are in an organized mess, in Miro’s manner. Event frames themselves take part in the party with the cycle “Thung na” which intensifies some points or red spots. The aerial and special character can also be found in the sculpted artwork with the cycles of “Formes”, “birds” or “Sankasii” where oxidized metal offers us softened pigmentation with singular nuances.

Jean-Marc-Louis remains an original artist, outside any current fashion. In fact, Jean-Marc Louis restores this warm atmosphere that we do know from Braque or Miro. According to this view, his work constitutes an absolute contribution to the history of contemporary art.

Мы можем чувствовать огромный дух свободы, необходимой для реализации выполненного произведения искусства. Эта работа отличного качества, которая сможет найти основное место как на международном рынке произведений искусства, так и как великая декорация для отражения элегантности и роскоши пространства. .‫يمكن أن نشعر بروح كبيرة من الحرية الالزمة لتنفيذ األعمال المنفذة للفن‬ ‫ والتي يمكن البحث عن مكان عمله‬، ‫هذا العمل هو من نوعية ممتازة‬ ‫ فضال عن مناسبات كبيرة‬، ‫الرئيسي على حد سواء في سوق الفن الدولية‬ .‫لتعكس األناقة والرفاهية للفضاء‬
