"London-based artist duo creating intricate mixed-media art installations"
Hsiao-Chi Tsai and Kimiya Yoshikawa are choreographers of culture, colour, material and expression. They work collaboratively on distinctive art installations and sculptural interventions, exploring classical notions of colour, material, shape and form that are derived from nature. From glass and metal to neoprene, Jesmonite, fibreglass, Perspex, fiberglass, UV pigments and blacklight, each material is subjected to new techniques. Their unique sensibility to re-examine the characteristics of materials composes a playful rhythm between form and void.
As diverse as their materials and techniques, Tsai & Yoshikawa’s inspiration for shapes and forms for the installations ranges from feathers and flowers to sea anemone and jellyfish; and from microscopic details to the giant swirls of galaxies. Their work opens the mind to new possibilities. The celebration of natural organic forms is the characteristic of their work. They present viewers with familiar shapes but simultaneously lead them on a journey of discovering new elements.
