Russell Young’s Superstar at Halcyon Gallery – dazzling yet dangerous

The Halcyon Gallery is one of the superstars of its generation – it knows its market perfectly – it has the taste of its clientele down to a T. It’s not everyone’s tastes, with their art quite often being the 3 B’s (Big, bold and brash). But it works, and the proof is evident in...
