Tag: asymmetry

Symmetry and beauty are often claimed to be linked, however over the years, artists have discovered that the less predictable beauty in asymmetry results in a more interesting piece of art. American artist James McNeill Whistler's "The Artist's Mother" is often used as a prime example of how imbalance can improve a composition, while Andy Warhol's famous "Marilyn Diptych", a work consisting of two panels, is argued by art critics as one of the best pieces he ever created. Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles noticed the influence of these visual concepts and asked artists to combine them, resulting in the "Asymmetrical Diptych Group Show".
