Artist Johnson Tsang
"With an adept understanding of ceramics and anatomy, Hong-Kong based Artist Johnson Tsang creates unexpected anthropomorphic sculptures where human forms seem to splash effortlessly through functional objects like bowls, plates, and cups. While the works shown here are mostly innocent and comical in nature the artist is unafraid of veering into more macabre subject matter in other artworks that grapple with war and violence. Tsang has been posting an amazing series of process photos over on his blog that demonstrate how he makes many of his ceramic creations.
In his Clay series, Tsang uses masterfully crafted organic and fluid forms to bring otherwise mundane stoneware to life. The sculptor mixes ordinary crockery, traditional face sculpting and an expressive splashing motif to create sculptures that seem to be frozen in time. Emotions like dreaminess, love, confusion, sadness and indifference are all easily identifiable in his expressive clay sculpture faces.
Yingge Ceramics Museum,which will be displaying Living Clay exhibition until 19th January, 2014, explain that the pieces “are satires of the human condition” and that “Tsang exemplifies the perfect marriage between ceramic form and meaning.”
