Weekly Inspiration: Duck Recoy

Maskull Lasserre re-carves discarded sculptures subtracting more layers transforming one object into another.

Here’s a duck decoy:

In David Behringe’s review of three of his pieces that are on exhibit ( http://design-milk.com/maskull-lasserre-re-carving-sculpture/ ) he explains the impact on Lasserre’s art:

"I saw a broken yard gnome on the sidewalk… and I paused. Thanks to Lasserre, I will never see a duck decoy or any other piece of “thrift shop” sculpture the same ever again."

That’s what makes art, art.

I’m inspired.
