WOW x WOW is proud to present WOW² (Volume II), the second installment of their annual exhibition of square artworks! Curated by WOW x WOW’s founder, the Scottish artist, curator and writer, Tim Maclean, WOW² (Volume II) gathers together a powerful roster of both established and emerging talent from within the international New Contemporary Art movement.

Featuring over 50 artists and comprised of close to 60 brand new and previously un-exhibited drawings and paintings, WOW² (Volume II) provides the opportunity for collectors of all levels to add some truly wonderful original artwork to their collections.

The square format has always been a favourite with artists throughout the years, as it provides a truly unique set of opportunities. 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 for the visual artist. 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.

We showcase some of our favourites below, enjoy!
