Tragic Oversized-Head Sculptures (6 pics)


Thomas Lerooy’s oversized-head sculptures belong in a Greek tragedy. How sad is it that these little men with ripped torsos can’t go anywhere because of their disproportionally large heads?

“The technique used by Thomas Lerooy, i.e. the disproportional enlargement of the head, is a typical trade mark of caricatured humour. However the result he creates, reaches much further than that of a stereotyped joke. In a highly intelligent way he plays with a number of visually contradictory propositions. The torsos strive to represent a powerful or elegant posture, however, ultimately their poses become pathetic due to the passiveness of their busts.” -Galerie Rodolphe Janssen

Lerooy currently lives and works in Gent, Belgium.
