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.
