Cosmic Elixir @ WOW x WOW

WOW x WOW is incredibly proud to present Cosmic Elixir. Opening on wowxwow.com at 7pm GMT on 7th January and running until 28th January, the exhibition will feature over 60 incredible original artworks by more than 50 super talented international artists.

Cosmic: [adjective] of or relating to the cosmos rather than to the earth alone.

Elixir: [noun] a substance, with a magical power to cure, improve, or preserve something.

During productive periods, the inspiration required for creativity is often in abundance, while at other, more challenging times, can be utterly elusive. It is of vital importance for an artist to engage in stimulating pursuits, the kind that encourage and develop inspiring thoughts and ideas. Imposing limitations on the creative process might suit some individuals, however, when it comes to setting oneself up for the reception of inspiration, it would be safe to say that limitations are barriers, not passageways. Therefore, we must remain open to everything the universe has to offer, and whenever possible, tap into the power and wonder of the ‘Cosmic Elixir’.

The entire exhibition can now be accessed via the link below. All sales will be on a first come, first served basis. Purchases can be made through the website, either with a debit/credit card or via PayPal. In the unlikely event that you encounter any issues, please email us at sales@wowxwow.com and we will be very happy to assist.

Labyrinth of Dreams @ WowXxoW

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Labyrinth of Dreams. Opening on wowxwow.com at 7pm GMT on 3rd December and running until 24th December, the exhibition will feature incredible original artworks by more than 80 super talented international artists.

The creation of a work of art very rarely occurs in a straight line. The path is often a labyrinthine journey of tangled thoughts, decisions and emotions that frequently arrive at dead ends, leaving the creator with the only option of backing up and trying again. The final destination of the creative process is one that culminates in the creation of a piece, that the artist can call finished and be proud of. It must measure up to the internal image that projects itself on the mind’s eye, as clear and as vivid as those of our dreams. However, once fully realised and the artwork complete, taking pleasure from the journey and utilising what has been learned along the way, are equally important aspects of the endeavour as basking in the glory and satisfaction of reaching the finish line. There is wealth of riches to be earned from the trials and tribulations of navigating the ‘Labyrinth of Dreams’.


Outwit the Monster

ONLINE GROUP EXHIBITION
8TH – 29TH OCTOBER 2021

WOW x WOW Gallery proudly presents Outwit the Monster.
One of the biggest fears and challenges that faces every creative at one time or another, is the creative block. Reasons for the rising of these barriers to inspiration are numerous and include the fear of imperfection; physical and mental exhaustion; the pressures of a deadline; an existential crisis; etc. Diagnosing the cause of a creative slump may make it easier to break through it, however, building up an arsenal of techniques to combat or prevent this dreaded condition is well worth the effort. What works best for each individual on each separate occasion is going to be entirely personal and tailored to the circumstances, although some tried and tested jump starts are, changing routines; getting outdoors; engaging in monotonous tasks; allowing yourself to fail; talking to other creatives; just turning up (in other words, not waiting for inspiration to strike before starting work). This exhibition is in honour of every creative who has battled with the wild beast and managed to ‘Outwit the Monster’.

Svane Family Foundation

“Safety Cage”, 2021, mixed media, 35″ x 11.5″ x 11.5″

SEPTEMBER 16 – 30, 2021
San Francisco Art Institute, Fort Mason Center, 2 Marina Boulevard

Excited to be part of the @svanefoudnation Ark exhibition and benefit auction, opening September 16th! Commissioned at the height of the pandemic, the 100 works included represent the diversity and brilliance of Bay Area artists, reflect on this historic era, and share visions of what to carry into the future. All auction proceeds go back into the local arts community via @artspansf.

Art makes the Bay Area the vibrant, creative, and innovative place we love to call home. Don’t miss this exhibition, spread the word, and plan your bids today—register to receive the auction preview at svaneff.org.

The foundation committee asked grant artists to use the theme of the Ark as a way of navigating through difficult times (pandemic, social unrest, political chaos, etc.) and create a work of art to reflect that idea. My work is “Safety Cage,” a mixed media piece that conveys the following:

“’Safety Cage’ is a kind of pandemic self-portrait. I envisioned humanity traversing the dark land in dark times, each individual isolated in their own safety cage. This cage is personal ark, mobile but contained. And contained inside is human hope, in the form of an awkward and fragile golden flower, waiting to be released once the dark times have passed, to grow and thrive again. Through this isolation comes self discovery, contemplation, and the desire to be delivered and to emerge stronger and more golden.”
