Ghosts Aflame – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Ghosts Aflame. Opening on at 7pm GMT on 6th March and running until 27th March, the exhibition features over 40 incredible international artists and consists of more than 50 fabulous artworks.

Memory plays a vital role in the artistic creative process, informing and inspiring everything from aesthetics to subject matter. When memory and the imagination combine, an artist’s creative scope is truly limitless and the vast array of incredible accomplishments throughout art history are a testament to this fact. Recent Harvard studies have shown that when we reminisce about something we’ve experienced in the past, it utilizes something known as episodic memory. This in turn helps to trigger divergent, or creative, thinking. Memories are such curious entities in themselves, with their often hazy, nebulous quality and ghostlike ability to rise to consciousness. In our creative pursuits, we must remain alert and give attention to those memories that glow and even shine bright. We must honour those ‘Ghosts Aflame’.
