Art Provides Employee Satisfaction

29 July in Articles, On-Line Journal

The act of creating art allows the release of personal expression by hands-on action and doing. Employees get satisfaction from completing a project. This is especially vital when employees are working on long-term projects. Such was the case in projects that I worked on in my corporate days. We worked on projects five years in advance. There is a high degree of satisfaction when we can see immediate results. Creating art gives us this immediate satisfaction alongside having the destiny of your project in your hands. [caption id="" align="alignright" width="422"] Art in the Etsy offices, Creative Commons, Charles & Hudson.[/caption] The act of looking at art, even if we just have it in our lobby or office, speaks to us on a subconscious level. It can inspire us to embrace the changes around us and trust that we will continuously discover new solutions. I love the quote from the book Who Moved...

The Art of Your Business Tribe

01 July in Articles, On-Line Journal

In the present day, your business may also be viewed as a tribe. Art puts you in touch with the soul of your company and helps you communicate this soul to your clients. Art is a tool for envisioning new products or services, depicting products, creating a new marketing or business plan, and much more. It creates a whole new visual language for your business and aligns the visions of all your employees. Much like the tribal medicine man, art can create your own business’s medicine....

Art is a Mirror

24 June in Articles, On-Line Journal

The Arts is a broad term. As a sensory language, The Arts encompasses visual arts, dance, music and literature. I like to focus primarily on the visual arts aspect in this book. Visual art makes a visible connection with our elements/subconscious and is a term that is loosely defined by drawing, painting and sculpture. How does visual art fit into our world? We have specially designed institutions for both viewing and protecting the definition of art. ...

Intuitive Knowing Leads to Business Opportunities (Part 2 of 2)

17 June in Articles, On-Line Journal

Through the medium of color, line and form, certain emotions are brought up within us. We meet parts of ourselves that would otherwise be difficult to reach. There are areas in our life and business that are unfamiliar to us. They can be emotions and feelings from long ago. Behaviors that helped us cope with situations. You know, that stuff in the closet. Often, I have seen that those things in our closet are purer then the truths we have adopted from others. ...

Intuitive Knowing Leads to Business Opportunities (Part 1 of 2)

10 June in Articles, On-Line Journal

When we use art to connect to our natural instincts and intuitive knowing, a whole new world of business opportunities open up. By connecting our strategies, projects and business to the laws and cycles of the natural world, using the tools I describe in part III, we gain clarity about the projects we are working on. Art strengthens our vision of where we are heading and what we need to get there. That is why art can help us sculpt out strategies right before our eyes and build projects from the chaotic clay of floating ideas into sharp business targets....

What is Art? (part 2 of 2)

03 June in Articles, On-Line Journal

I have played around with the acronym that art might stand for. How about: Always Reality Today; A Reading of Time; Appreciation Reveals Truth; or Advanced Reading Trance. The Webster’s definition of Art is: “A visual object or experience consciously created through an expression of skill or imagination.” When we use the term art, we can encompass diverse media such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, decorative arts and photography. And then there is the age-old debate on whether we can classify a particular modern sculpture installation as art. [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="277"] Linz PA Museumspark Parkbank, Creative Commons-Isiwal[/caption] There appears to be a fine line between a practical object, designed to fulfill a purpose, and something that purely has its function in aesthetics, created to shift something in our feelings or thoughts. This brings us to a sore point historically within the stereotypical artists’ community: value. Value in terms of the functional aspect...

What is Art ? (Part 1 of 2)

28 May in Articles, On-Line Journal

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="255"] Vincent van Gogh Self-portrait, detail from the Venus (Botticelli), temple lion, Japanese porcelain, Chokwesculpture[/caption] What is art? When I ask myself this question, my first response is “what isn’t it”? Lets explore the connection between art and business. We will discover how our intuition accesses information from the subconscious mind as an invaluable tool in linking art and business. Through visual art we have invaluable given tools to access and strengthen this intuition. One of these tools embodies the elements of nature. Everything around us is art, life is art, and the way we do things passionately is art. Think about the art of bookkeeping, the art of finance, or the art of business. Art is interpretation and creation at the same time. More importantly, I find that art reminds me of all the elements that I, as a human, am made up of: earth, water, fire, air....
