I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.
I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.
I’m not lost, I’m on my way.
Skeletal Creatures Carved From Everyday Objects - Maskull Lasserre
Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre extracts the most delicate anatomical forms of animals and humans from common everyday objects like picture frame, hanger or a bed corner.
Born 1978 in Calgary, Alberta, he has lived in South Africa and Ottawa and now lives in Montreal. Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility. Elements of nostalgia, accident, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.
When every day is like a war between the will to go on,
And a wish that the world would spiral into the sun,
Turn your head towards that storm that’s surely coming along.
