London gallery shines a light on neon art
Neon works for four generations
The 43-year-old artist comes from a long line of neon enthusiasts who have made, bought and exhibited neon works for four generations. When the Bracey family home finally reached critical neon capacity in 2008, Marcus and his father Chris decided to move their collection to this studio. Around 1400 fixtures line the walls, accompanied by kitsch memorabilia that Bracey has collected from film sets and garage sales. There's just barely enough of room for a narrow walkway that winds through nearly four miles of suspended neon. Each section of the junkyard showcases an era in the history of neon art and a chapter of the Bracey family history..
