Accurate Anatomical Art

{SummaryTitle}

Canada-born Maskull Lasserre is a sculptural artist who uses everyday found objects to create anatomically sound works of art. Lasserre uses the handle of an axe to create his snake skeleton, which was the featured object of his Secret Carpentry exhibit. The skeleton of the snake is transformed from the handle of the axe, and the head was created from the bottom end.

Maskull Lasserre’s intricate artwork is delicately carved out of objects that have lost their use. Lasserre takes objects that are mundane and creates new and interesting art pieces out of them. According to the self-penned bio on Lasserre’s website, “elements of nostalgia, allegory, humor, and macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.”
