‘WOW² (Volume II)’ Exhibition – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement | 0

WOW x WOW Gallery is both very honoured and mega excited to announce details of what will be the second of our now annual exhibition of square artworks! The show follows and expands on the first ‘WOW²’ which we hosted last year, so we’ve kept things straight forward and titled this one, ‘WOW² (Volume II)’. Maintaining our priority of allowing participating artists full creative freedom, the show imposes no restrictions on subject matter. The only stipulation is that submitted work be created in a square format. ‘WOW² (Volume II)’ opens on 1st June and will run until 22nd June.

The artists have gone all out this year and produced some absolutely spectacular pieces for the show! So, we really hope that you will join us here at wowxwow.com when the exhibition goes live on Friday, 1st June at 7pm BST.

The square format provides a truly unique set of opportunities for the visual artist. With its equal sides and symmetrical properties, it harnesses a distinctive power when it comes to balance and harmony. The traditional compositional ‘rule of thirds’ really goes out the window when working within a square, which creates a very liberating and refreshing sense of freedom. The shape also highlights and strengthens simplified compositions. Negative spaces take on a heightened impact. The square can even be rotated 45 degrees onto its corner, to provide a striking new dynamic and open up a whole host of fresh creative possibilities.
