True 1:1 Square Proportion - 4x4 Size

4x4 is a popular small size square size.

The square is perhaps the most intriguing proportion, as it is root of all of the other proportions. It is commonly used in both photography and art. Squares are typically used as the center canvas of a triptych or as a single canvas hung at a 45° angle. The square proportion is long used with medium format professional cameras, and most photographs we see on websites and social media are based on square images. Since all sides of the canvas are the same length, your eye is drawn evenly across the surface of the painting creating a sense of harmony, balance, and a generally a pleasing visual experience. The square format is also a good choice for artists who focus on geometric shapes or patterns in their work, as the regularity of the square shape can help reinforce these elements. Some artists enjoy the challenge of working within the confines of a square format, as it forces them to think creatively resulting in intriguing compositions.

Our Hardcore Pro Pro Canvas Panels are the flattest on the market. They are made using MDF (medium density fiberboard) which is the highest quality engineered wood board on the market. Moisture in the board can cause undesirable results to the panel and your artwork, which is why we size the board with four layers on the front before the canvas is mounted, thereby defending against moisture getting into the board and underneath your artwork.

Canvas Panels should be as flat as possible, otherwise, they don't display well in a frame, and can create spaces between the artwork and the frame. A bowed panel is also a sign of having been impacted by the effect of moisture. Canvas can shrink, even after it is mounted on the board. For this reason, Masterpiece® developed a unique proprietary process that stress-relieves each panel, thereby virtually eliminating the bow that is commonly found in competing panel products. Hardcore Pro Canvas Panels provide a stable foundation for your art.

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. ♦ Michelangelo

Michelangelo, one of the most acclaimed artists and sculptors of the Renaissance, possessed an unparalleled ability to breathe life into stone. His creations, whether in frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or in magnificent statues like David, were more than mere artworks; they were manifestations of an intense internal vision. This statement, profound in its simplicity, encapsulates Michelangelo's approach to his work: an unyielding pursuit to unveil the beauty that lay dormant within raw materials.

For artists, this sentiment underscores the importance of vision and perseverance. Within each canvas, piece of clay, or raw block of marble, lies a masterpiece waiting to be revealed. Our role, much like Michelangelo's, is to diligently work, nurturing our skills and harnessing our passion until the vision is realized. Michelangelo's teaches us that with patience, every stroke, cut, and revision brings us one step closer to unveiling the beauty that already exists, just waiting for the right hands to set it free.

The spirit of artistry is inspiration and creation. We too are inspired by the wisdom of this quote and hope you are inspired by our interpretation thereof, as well as this inimitable portrait we created of Michelangelo. Go create!
