Arts Of The Week: Johnson Tsang’s In Me

August 21, 2016

Introducing Johnson Tsang, a Hong Kong based artist who is internationally recognized for his effort in combining realist sculpting techniques with surreal imagery in his works.

I am always in awe with how Johnson Tsang combines the functionality of everyday objects such as bowls, plates and cups with deeply emotional and sensitive topics like war and violence – creating bizarre and unexpected sculptures, which are mostly innocent and comical, yet thought provoking.

I love how these strange sculptures are suggestive and yet open-ended in nature, too. The varied interpretations extend the viewing experience, open up discussions showing how Johnson Tsang is not afraid of veering into taboo matters in his arts.

This particular project titled In Me (2015), consists of 4 sets that were exhibited in Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale in 2015. What do you think he’s trying to portray with this piece?

Since I’m completely blown away with his works, you’ll definitely see more of Johnson Tsang’s projects in the future.

In the mean time you can check out his other notable projects such as Who did it? (2014) and Lifetime Partner (2009).
