‘WOW² (Volume VII)’ – WOW x WOW Gallery – Announcement

posted in: Announcement 0

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents ‘WOW² (Volume VII)’, which opens on at 7pm BST on 8th September and will run until 29th September. WOW² (Volume VII) will be the seventh exhibition hosted by WOW x WOW in celebration of square artworks.

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.
