Notes from Lieutenant Brown
While other sculptors are busy doing all the conventional things that sculptors do, along comes Maskull Lasserre who rocks the senses. Maskull crosses elements of things we take for granted in everyday life, and creates a hybrid of its own. The result, at least for me, is a sense of shock. "What's going on here?" It may be the blending of a keyboard with a Remington typewriter, as we see above, or it may be the black skull of a sabre tooth tiger consuming a violin. And, after the shock subsides I find myself yearning to see what's next?
To confirm my reactions, I checked out a few other online sites and to see what other's had to say about his creations.
Colossal Art and Design calls his work "Incredible Anatomic Sculptures". Please click here.
Senses Lost, writes: "Elements of nostalgia, allegory, humour and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar". Please click here.
Made in Slant a daily art and design blog reports Maskull describing his work as:
“explor(ing) 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.”Please click here .
