Lurking bones: Rough and captivating anatomical sculptures of Maskull Lasserre


Canadian sculptor Maskull Lasserre produces stellar works that incorporate rough-carved anatomical themes into everyday objects -- an ax-handle is carved into a sinuous spinal column, clavicles emerge from coat hangers, a rib-cage is carved into a stack of books, foetal skeletons lurk in bedposts, and so on (there's also plenty of non-anatomical work that's charming as all get-out, like the typewriter-piano, sniper's violin and insane farm implements). Lasserre is exhibiting in a group show at Montreal's PFOAC gallery until Aug 6.
