Rexy Tseng (b. 1986) is a visual artist who works primarily in painting and installation. His art practice derives from the dark humor and unrequited desires found within contemporary living conditions. Blurring bodily forms and objects, Tseng’s works press sensations against logic. By expanding on intimate observations, Tseng stages the unresolved past with possible futures, where he addresses personal politics, technological flaws, and hurt moments. Born and raised in Taipei until the age of thirteen, Tseng relocated to upstate New York to further his education. He received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009, he withdrew from MFA at UCLA in 2012, and he withdrew from MFA at University of Oxford in 2017. Between degrees, Tseng worked as a software engineer in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
Tseng has exhibited in Armenia, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, the U.K., and the U.S.. He has received awards and recognition from Allegro Prize, Charlottenborg Foundation, Li Chun-Shan Foundation Visual Art Awards, Taipei Art Awards, Tomorrow Sculpture Awards, and others. Tseng has participated in artist residencies internationally, including Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Cite internationale des arts, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Korea), Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, and more.
