Beauty And Art

Bold   Elegant   Insightful   Reflective   Calm   Beautiful

These are some of the words that come to mind as I study this design concept created for  Genealogy, LLC.  Congratulations and thanks to Cindy Arbiture, Visual Marketer/Designer for nailing this beautiful presentation which incorporates an aspect of my work fashioned with a broader visual statement about theirs,  one that perhaps  transcends even the best choice of words.   It’s an appeal to our inner sensibilities and declares what we aspire to know in this moment about the company, their products, image and it’s Founder, Brian Fox.   

“Makeup is very much an expression of self, not unlike the clothes we wear or the past times we choose.  The style in which we paint our face is a personal ritual that lets the world know a bit more about who we are.”   – Brian Fox

It’s exciting to see and share the way  Brian Fox Krawczyk, Beauty Visionary and Founder of Genealogy, LLC is utilizing my painting Celestial Celebration in their “Envision Art” campaign, “merging the creative processes of beauty and art.”  The juxtaposition of the visceral process I celebrate along with imperfections inherent to my work commingled with a very polished elegant design and product presentation is remarkable.  It gives one the sense of passages of time- from an unrefined raw past to an evolutionary present projecting toward a golden future.  On a deeper level, one can also sense spiritual transformation, the true colors of radiant beauty and more.  (It’s interesting to note that the word “genealogy” according to Webster is defined as—“an account of the origin and historical development of something.”)

Georgia O’Keefe once remarked, “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle

“Through painting, Pablo Picasso was able to defy logic, Salvador Dali was able to defy reality, and Vincent van Gogh was able to defy emotion. Art has an ability to say things we can’t because it engages the senses. While statistics might engage your head, art can aesthetically access our sensibilities.

Perhaps the same can be said for beauty-

“Of which beauty will you speak? There are many: there are a thousand: there is one for every look, for every spirit, adapted to each taste, to each particular constitution.”  -Eugene Delacroix 

“When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem.  But when I’ve finished, if the solution isn’t beautiful, I know it’s wrong.” –Buckminster Fuller

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1Peter3:3-4

“Characteristics which define beauty are wholeness, harmony and radiance.” – Thomas Aquinas

My thoughts about beauty and art:

There is a synchronizing union that that develops with the heart and head when working with your hands.  It is a desire to transpose these present-moment engagements and marry them onto the canvas as a visible chronicle of unbridled truths.  The veil of uncertainty is lifted with the kiss of belief. Quiet confidence and inner strength are obtained through a trusted covenant which declares, “Never give up, I will never forsake you.” The vow of commitment is to stay the course, despite all obstacles.  In honoring the sacrament to create, a God-granted vision bands together with a determined spirit, wielding into existence, beauty and art.    D.
