Working primarily with porcelain, ReCheng Tsang creates site-specific installations and small sculptures. The work consists of up to several hundred—sometimes thousands—of thin porcelain pieces. Each piece is rolled, pinched, pulled, torn, or otherwise manipulated by hand, then composed within a pre-defined grid. She explores the intrinsic qualities of porcelain, malleable and impressionistic, to create work that is tactile and sensual. She is also interested in the dichotomous relationship between the porcelain’s hardness and permanence, and the resulting work which appears to be delicate, ephemeral and in motion. She works monochromatically, often leaving the porcelain unglazed, to allow the attention to focus on the subtle shifts in form, color, and texture.
