Hidden Faces in Johnson Tsang’s Stainless Steel Spill Sculptures

Johnson Tsang sculpture7 Johnson Tsang sculpture6

The sculptures of artist Johnson Tsang are unbelievably realistic.  That is, until you spot faces in the spilling liquid.  Primarily working in ceramic and stainless steel, Tsang’s sculpture’s seem to be caught like photographs.  Liquids spill from mugs, streams intersect, and crash to the ground.  Hidden by Tsang in the flow, however, are faces.  Two colliding streams of liquid are actually faces mid-kiss.  His work emphasizes a temporality – time as it quickly passes and their memories.  [via]
