Reflections on art and leadership

I use my art to reflect an artist and a senior manager in the financial services industry. I notice that the deeper I understand myself the more I succeed to impact others; in both art and work.

About the Artist
Maurice van Tilburg’s paintings represent the journey towards deeper expression by combining the concepts of beauty and pity. Van Tilburg’s canvases brim with an alternating sense of hope and loss, with the contrast between them illustrated through a bright palette contoured by a dark textural movement. In that borderland between beauty and pity, the viewer glimpses the artist as an intense creator/achiever and also as a reflective man, and the struggles they both face in order to take what van Tilburg calls “full ownership of life.”

Van Tilburg’s discovery of deeper beauty through awareness of its fragility is portrayed by the radiant layers of oil paint and the omnipresent drip-like lines that both compose and obscure the art around them. The Gothic sensibility and impressionist references reinforce the overall sense of dislocation, expectant anxiety and alluring intimacy. In this regard, van Tilburg both holds the viewer at a distance and beckons them as close as they’re willing to come.
