‘Monochromagic 2’ Exhibition – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Monochromagic 2, which opens on wowxwow.com at 7pm BST on 5th July and will run until 26th July. Monochromagic 2 will be the second exhibition hosted by WOW x WOW in celebration of monochrome artworks. The first instalment, last year, was a feature showcase of work by 6 artists and this year we’ve decided to open it up to a much larger group. Monochromagic 2 features close to 50 incredible international artists and consists of just under 60 wonderful artworks.

For centuries, artists have created monochrome images and sculptures. By limiting the colour palette to just one, the focus for the artist, and in turn the viewer, becomes more direct and encourages deeper contemplations and closer connections with the colour, form, texture and techniques of an artwork. The artists participating in this exhibition are all brought together through their affinity for monochromatic exploration and simultaneously via a shared passion for the language of surrealism and fantastical narratives. The absolutely intriguing monochrome wonders you will behold, have unfurled from truly masterful imaginations and are loaded with enigmatic and enchanting magic: ‘Monochromagic’.
