Creativity part II
Creativity flows through our Life? For a painter being a daily observer of Life in Light and Colour; a sculptor in the shape of things; a poet in words; a musician in sound. What’s true for you
We continue our journey to seek for answers to our question.., that we raised in our creative lounge.., finding an answer that closely is what you believe is the case..,
Johannes van der Horn “Master of Light” • Good Morning everybody!

My work comes from Spirit, I am just a vessel to allow it to appear in reality and do whatever it needs to do in the world. When I paint I need to totally disappear and follow the energy. My paintings help bring about social evolution by healing the individuals and bringing about new consciousness. They carry higher vibrations which help lifting the densities in the viewer. You can view them on http://www.piercarla-paintings.co.uk .

Use whatever medium seems right for the piece. I enjoy pastels mostly but I use photography as well as the “digital” world (creative software such as Adobe Illustrator) to create. My aim is to leave the impression that wasn’t there before with a fresh perspective on form and color.

Me alegra participar en este grupo que incentiva el arte,la creatividad y a los artistas.

I’m an Englishman in Los Angeles. My work is an exploration of the urban environment. The mixed media process I employ is somewhere between photography and painting. I am obsessed by making images, I wake up thinking about art, I have ideas as I drive down the freeway or walk the dogs. The city is my muse. Thank you for the invitation to the group. nothing better than the support of others in the art world.

Thank you for inviting me. I agree with Degas. As a botanical artist, I often hear “we draw what we see”, but for me it is to draw what I see so others can see clearly! With regard to the creative experience, for me it keeps evolving. I keep digging deeper in to the understanding of what I do, connecting historically to a genre that dates back over 60,000 years. Botanical Art always had as its main focus the need to discover the use for plants – mainly for food (agriculture), medicine (pharmacology), and clothing (commerce). The age of exploration developed the desire to create creative collections of plants and gardens for their aesthetic beauty. I am a city girl who grew up in an apartment in New York. I never gardened, but rather I spent many hours in the great museums enjoying the works of classical painters. When I discovered the French Court Botanical Masters, especially that of Gerard van Spaendonck (Dutch Flower Painter), I found my love of nature could be inexorably connected to my love of classical painting. It was this profound appreciation for the pursuit of this style that showed me how the creation of art, and the FOCUS of each endeavor, was a way to still inner conversation and direct it to the source of the creative power. I work predominately in watercolor, often on large canvases, and with small brushes. Exploring nature’s connection to the ascent of man and custom, to knowledge and thirst for knowledge, I see how its evolution parallels the human spirit and its quest for self-knowledge. And so, as I strive for realism to achieve actualization, the quest for each one of my works is by grace, the outcome a gift, and the process is gratitude. The finished work reverberates with a multitude of strokes – each a memory of my beloved. The creative journey is meant to bring me home, again and again.
Walter Paul Bebirian • @Kasia Barbara Turajczyk – our society has developed and changed much since Rembrandt was just a craftsman doing his job – do you know how Rembrandt received his assignments to practice his craft? Did he get enough of these assignments so that he was able to earn enough money to support himself? and from a curiosity stand point – did he enjoy working on his craft?

Creativity is who I am. I can not separate it from my daily life, or know what it is like to be with out it. Artistic skill is essential, or the creative genii will have no means to express itself.
I am a synesthete seeing letters, number, words, feelings/emotions, thoughts in colors. Other synesthetes have different merging of their senses and for some the sensations are powerful.
In art this has been a tremendous benefit… as color and shapes appear quite spontaneously.
(synesthesia does however often mess up maths and spelling)
The process of making art is my home. When I add the element of prayer, of meditation,
I feel a greater surge of love into it.
Alba Laura Arciello •
Thanks for invitation.
I think that creativity is essential to deeply live the life, the artist lives in a spiritual dimension that gives him the ability to give the right value to large and small things that live every day and its sensitivity leads him to love the world in for better or worse, trying to “grow up” and give the right contribution to the society where he lives.
When art contains “truth” emanates light and vital energy.
Benjamin Casiano Art & Design • Nobody said it best than Hopper. If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
Alba Laura Arciello •
Hopper is the painter of silence and solitude …. there is no space for words ..
Ellen Fisch •
Hopper’s notebooks (exhibited some years ago at the Morgan Library: NYC) are filled with words. Some of these writings are available in catalogues. Hopper is a genius at suggesting through words and paintings. I think that Benjamine and Alba are both right.
Alba Laura Arciello •
I could see the masterpieces of Hopper in an exhibition in Rome. I really like this artist who has expressed well the “empty” existential of a metropolis. He was also an excellent draftsman, I have seen his numerous sketches for his work, meticulous and expressive as his works.We could talk about him for hours…Thank you dear Ellen.

Color and form inspires me beyond anything else. I can see colors in an outfit, a particular movie scene, nature, or another artist’s painting and I am inspired to create. Then the composition comes. My muse of late is the horse. But no matter what colors inspire, without a great composition the artwork fails for me. There is a flow in the individual shape, line & contour that I must get right or my painting is not mine.
Bianca Vaessen •
I get inspired by the landscapes in my area, when I go for a walk with my dog. I think the most interesting landscapes are, when it has been raining. Then there is much to see on the ground! The rain that makes its way through the mud and the refraction of light in the water on the (field) roads.

For me,the path of creativity is directly related to the path of freedom. It is a path of knowing yourself as a creator, a feeling profoundly linked to our consciousness. To paint is to open yourself to a self-awareness, fearless towards what is inside my own being. I feel like painting is the very moment when you’re facing your unkown self.
I suppose that for me as a figurative sculptor, I relate to creativity as the drive, the impulse, that makes me want to interpret my everyday experiences with people- whether interactive or merely observing, and incorporate them into my work. It is the continuous transaction between my impressions and my expressions.
Brenda Oelbaum •
I am both an arts administrator for a non-profit women’s art organization and a conceptual artist so much of my creativity flows through my thought process and my passion for making connections and bringing people together. Whether I am connecting people with other people or ideas for my own art I would say that I am a conduit of connectivity.
Adrien von Ferscht 阿德里安 冯韦什特 • A phone call from a friend this morning sparked off a whole new realisation on the subject of “creativity” that I hadn’t realised.
Most of the comments to the subject question has been from actual creators. Yet there’s the whole world of appreciators of that creativity that hasn’t been much spoken of here – the people on the other side of the fence, as it were.
My friend said she was thinking of going to Frieze tomorrow and was having second thoughts [she, like me, live in Scotland – so it’s not around the corner exactly]. I told her that she had to go, no matter the cost and effort. Why? Because Frieze presents such a veritable cornucopia of creativity under one roof that the atmosphere in those marquees is electric to the point of being palpable.
So the penny dropped for me – such a collection of creative work under one roof presents an energy that is unsurpassed. Put into that mix the crowds of art-appreciative folk under the same roof and that energy is boosted all the more.
Frieze is a brilliant concept born 10 years ago. The addition of Frieze Masters this year is sheer brilliance.
What’s the moral of what I’m saying here? Creativity is energy-giving to not only the creator, but to the observer. It is a glue that brings together like-minded people – it inspires us all to do greater things and in a world where inspirational experiences are all the more rare, we must nurture and cherish the creators.
Creativity is pointless without the appreciators. It’s like an unwritten pact. The energy flows between the onlooker and the maker.
Hopefully, my enthusiasm makes some sense here!

Adrien – what you have written makes a great deal (not just some) sense!
Adrien von Ferscht 阿德里安 冯韦什特 • Walter
I’ve just read your message and gone into the links and found something oh so relevant there!!!!!
“THE ULTIMATE SOURCE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY”
That’s exactly what the collective energy and inspiration one gets from bringing together under one roof so much creativity. It exudes energy that is virtually drinkable. Add the enthusiastic, like-minded, often highly stylish onlookers and it’s almost too much to take in!
Thanks for giving me that phrase. It encapsulates exactly what I was trying to say.

All is true there is no false in being an artist. I just do, wonder and enjoy it.All is true as a curator, working with art and artists is meaningful, i just do and ask more questions. All could be true as a project coordinator. I just do and feel good when the work is done. PS Have you checked my profile at linkedin?
