Born in Hong Kong in 1960, artist Johnson Tsang employs realist sculptural techniques accompanied by his incredible surrealist imagination. Tsang pushes the boundaries of the viewer’s imagination. In Tsang’s magical realism, he is able to see each object with a new soul and function and does not rest until he has finally extracted it. After being familiar with the world as it is seen through Tsang’s eyes, we step into a new creative hemisphere, he adds a sort of beauty and an unforgettable meaning to everyday objects, constantly reinvented in his anthropomorphic sculptures. He takes them to a whole new existential level in a surreal, fantastic and magical manner, one that invites us to dream. Tsang’s porcelains are provocative, they challenge us and they have an irreverent stance. His sculptures convey this sensation in which they seem to be able to shape themselves and the metamorphic and anthropomorphic character is yet again displayed with full intensity in which the energy and movement are almost always present. They make us step into their inner and sensorial world, takes us to their passiveness and inner silence. A frequent feeling of pain, oppression or being crushed is also evident. In the series of babies Tsang depicts a playful world that is intensively fun and cartoonish, in which the babies’ big faces underline their traits and emotions. The babies show an evident disbelief towards the world and the beings around them, as if they aren’t able to see themselves abiding by this world’s laws. Creativity never ends, Tsang has a surrealist imagination which never becomes complacent, developing instead new techniques which give us innovative and unexpected approaches at all times.
