Sculptor Maskull Lasserre RE-carves Imagined Skeletons into Discarded Sculptures.
Sculptor Maskull Lasserre acquired souvenir sculptures, the kind found in antique stores, which he then used as a foundation for his own artwork. In a process he refers to as “re-carving,” Lasserre removed details from the artist’s original work to reveal intricate skeletal structures.
Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility. Elements of nostalgia, accident, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.
