Working primarily with palette knives and a countless assortment of acrylic paints, Gaffrey manages to produce works of breathtaking beauty and complexity. His technique might best be described as “sculpting with paint”, which creates a lifelike and engaging depiction of an environment that invites the viewer to reach out and touch it.

Years ago we featured one of the famous work from Hong Kong sculptor Johnson Tsang – “Ying Yeung“, a floating Coffee Kiss Sculpture (see photo below); and today we will bring you more stunning sculptures from Tsang. Generally, Tsang’s works mostly employ realist sculptural techniques accompanied by surrealist imagination, integrating the two elements, “human beings” and “objects”, into creative themes. No matter the coffee kiss, flower head or those interest bowl series, Tsang’s creative sculptures blurs the line between abstract and figurative art and bring a whole new vision of the ceramic sculptures.
Matchstickmen, is an unusual installation created by German artist Wolfgang Stiller. In generally, they are several large-scale burnt matches where the charred remains of each tip appeared as the face of a human. The artist didn’t clearly explain the underlying meaning of this installation, which he wants to to keep it open and leave space for one’s own imagination. For me, these lifeless burning faces in coffin-like matchboxes have hauntingly unsettling references to death and mortality. What do you think about?
