|Title: ||Fazer arte, sentir a vida : acerca do acto criador|

|Abstract: ||This thesis consists of an attempt to capture the universal characteristics of the artistic creative process, using chosen recurrent examples about painting and writings of the artists discussed. The search does not intend to clarify the creative act by trying to
confine it to the pictorial praxis, nor to the plastic arts in particular, but to open it up to
the global universe of Art. This work has looked to demonstrate that the diverse reviews of the underlying human processes, (i.e. creativity, imagination, etc) reveal a narrow one and complex symbiosis with the mechanisms of human life in existential terms.
Through separate analyses that occur simultaneously in life, and always from the artist's departure point of view, the inner processes generate the artistic main goal and the artistic will is dissected. This demonstrates the deep inter-relationship between art and life, it reveals an essence search in the artistic praxis, as well as the presence of a spiritual parallel with religiosity. The inner need of the artist to reach his artistic main goal, allied to the diverse feelings that immerge, causes the creative presence of a metaphysical dimensional space, which materializes in the work of art. This phenomenon expresses itself in the concept of Metaphysical mimesis. The confluence of the need for essence, plus the structure of an artistic will of metaphysical dimensions, sometimes projects onto the idealistic character of the work. The sensible and rational processes that combine the intentions of the artist are reflected in the artist and his work. Utopia, chaos, organization, sensibility and self-structure are examples of this. There is a permanent search to clarify and structure the way the creative act happens and what precedes the execution of the work of art. Motivation, impulse, artistic feeling, will, necessity, spirituality, creativity, life, existence, death and metaphysics are elements present in the artistic soul. To understand these feelings its impossible not to approach some art definition; from these definitions would come to appear Essentialist theory roots, Metaphysical theory or even a definition theory built from psychological states. However, this points out that these only appear as a consequence of creative act, looking to give to it consistency and coherence.|
