London meets Moscow in new ice-breaking exhibition

2 January 2014

A London gallery owned by Jamie and Tyrone Wood, sons of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, has curated an exhibition of British artists for Moscow’s RuArts Gallery in celebration of the latter’s ten-year anniversary. Breaking the Ice, by London’s Scream gallery, features artists such as Chris Bracey, who is also known as the Neon Man for his extensive use of neon lights. Over his decades-long career, Bracey has created iconic artworks for the likes of David LaChappelle and Stella McCartney.

Also included in the show is the work of Taiwanese-Japanese duo Hsiao-Chi Tsai and Kimiya Yoshikawa whose extraordinary pieces marry materials such as neoprene, acrylics and UV paint with lighting and installation. Their sculptures resemble psychedelic flowers that are both beautiful and grotesque, and seductive and unsettling. The exhibition will run at RuArts Gallery in Moscow until 18 January.
