Molding Clay, Molding Self – A Sculptor’s Tale of Love, Loss, and Life

000

Johnson Tsang (previously), a renowned Hong Kong sculptor, excels in the creation of ceramics, stainless steel sculptures and public art. His mastery lies in blending realistic sculptural techniques with a touch of surrealism. His works often feature expressive human figures intertwined with elements of elasticity and fluidity, conveying powerful messages.

His love affair with clay began 26 years ago and has been his comfort during some of life’s most difficult times. When his mother became ill, he modeled her likeness in clay. After her death, he created ‘Earth to Earth’ and ‘Life Clock’ as poignant reminders of life’s transience. His piece “Survival” was a response to the Wenchuan earthquake in Sichuan, while “Make Tea, Not War!” and “Karma” were his artistic responses to the U.S. war on Iraq.

A man of few words, Johnson lets his art do the talking, expressing his deepest emotions and thoughts. He sees life in clay – a life that is good and beautiful. He believes that as he shapes the clay, it shapes his subconscious and reveals his true self.

Johnson’s creations have graced exhibitions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Spain and Switzerland. They are treasured by museums and private collectors around the world.
