Artists always express their inner feelings in their works, which represent their imagination, individual creativity and insights derived from everyday occurrences. Johnson Tsang, who excels in expressing himself through sculptural art, invites the public to his latest exhibition, entitled “Imagine – Sculptures by Johnson Tsang” to be held from October 7-31.
The exhibition is one of the solo exhibitions of “Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme IV” organised by the Art Promotion Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It will be held in two stages. The first stage will run from October 7 to 31 at Grand Century Place, Mong Kok, while the second will be held from December 6 to 16 at the Exhibition Gallery of the Hong Kong Central Library.
Johnson Tsang, a self-taught ceramicist, specialises in ceramic sculpturing. In 1996, he set up his own ceramics workshop to teach and organise activities to promote ceramic art to the community.
The exhibition will feature 15 of Tsang’s works and about 200 artworks by members of “Hand in Hand with Clay”, a community ceramic project.
Tsang’s artworks on display include his latest creations — “Kiss between Black and White” and “Humanosaur”. The idea of “Kiss between Black and White” was from the opposing concepts of black and white, which are often catalytic factors behind conflicts. Tsang believes that people's thinking in opposition has long been the major cause of disputes, man-made disasters and wars. His artwork encourages people to cast away prejudice and build trust and understanding. He thinks black and white can also be in harmony.
Inspired by the extinction of the dinosaurs, Tsang created the “Humanosaur” to remind people to think hard about the possible extinction of mankind caused by destructive behaviour.
Grand Century Place is located at 193 Prince Edward Road West, Mong Kok. The Exhibition Hall is open daily from 10am to 10pm. The Hong Kong Central Library is located at 66 Causeway Road, Causeway Bay, and is open daily from 10am to 8pm. Admission to both exhibition venues is free.
