"Art is the opposite of nature. A work of art can come only from the interior of man."
1863 - 1944
Even in the most realistic work of art, nature has been altered and changed by the artist. We as creative leaders alter the world, change it fit our perspective, our view of how things should be. This is what makes every painter, novelist, poet and musician unique and different. No two of us are alike. Who we are changes what we create and what we create changes who we are. We are not God. We are different than God. We are other.
