Michele and Bec want to slow down, and go deeper on some of the recurring themes of the Unearthing Art Podcast. A core belief they share is: Great art, impactful art, reveals something of the creator.

However this isn’t a rule of being an artist (there are no rules!), and certainly artists can have different motivations and go to market with different art offerings. Michele talks about what it looked like when she had different priorities for her art versus now, and suggests that the popular notion of ‘finding our style’—that is, developing the kind of unique art offering that builds collector demand and commands premium prices beyond the mainstream art market—is more about unlocking and revealing pieces of ourselves that we already have within.

What does it actually mean to reveal something of ourselves in our art? What are the benefits and possible challenges? What are the symptoms of resisting a deeper revelation that may be just beneath the surface of our current work?
