Releasing Beauty

The great artist Michelangelo came across a piece of gashed marble that had passed through the hands of a number of his contemporaries before reaching him. It had been deemed flawed, but he saw the great potential hidden within it, and knew that it was his job to simply chip away the excess marble and release the form of David.

What if the role of an artist or a designer isn't to create beauty, but to release it? What if ‘creativity' isn’t the instrument, but we are? What if we shift our perspective to place the act of creation in its rightful place: that our creative works point to the creator as the beauty hidden in this world is released as it passes through our hands.
