These bizarre sculptures could only be the work of Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre. His talent resides in his ability to carve human or animal body parts like the skeleton of the human head, the spine or teeth directly into common wooden objects.
According to his website, his sculptures explore the “unexpected potential of the everyday and its associated structures of authority, class and value. Elements of nostalgia, allegory, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.”
Of course, seeing his artwork in person would be even more gratifying. Check it out from now till August 6 at the Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain (PFOAC) in Montreal.
