Episode 60

Supercharge your art practice by exploring what your art ISN'T /60

See Michele's stunning exhibition Shared Wavelengths online at Fenton&Fenton Gallery.


Bec and Michele are doing a 30 day art challenge, but not the kind of challenge you might see on Instagram… this is about deliberately failing (proper, ugly failing), making bold and risky moves that don’t work out, and creating pieces that leave you thinking, ‘well that’s definitely not it!’.

This episode digs into what this kind of ‘practising failure’ looks like on a day to day basis in the art studio, and the multiple layers of enquiry, understanding and possibility it can uncover. Michele talks about important questions to frame the process and how to guide yourself moment-to-moment without getting stuck on the idea of having one vision, one style, one feeling forever.
