A new spectacular edition of Blooming Spark by Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa was unveiled this week at Designjunction 2012 event. This is a second edition using new colours and techniques following the successful multi coloured Blooming Spark I from 2011.
Tsai and Yoshikawa come from textile and sculpture backgrounds respectively. Their joint practice has cumulated in some extraordinary pieces that marry unexpected materials such as neoprene, acrylics and UV paint with lighting and installation. Their bold use of colour and modern sensibility combine to produce joyful, imaginative work. The pieces are contradictory being synthetic, organic and hand made all at the same time.
Well known for their public and private commissions, for Vessel Gallery they have produced a vibrant unique sculptural chandelier in acrylic that resembles a bouquet of alien botany.
