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.

Human Faces Frozen of Stainless Steel by Tsang Cheung Shing

Tsang plays with the idea of reality by infusing his works with an unconventional imagination. The artist’s metallic and ceramic structures often feature a cooperation between inanimate objects and human beings. He emulates the unpredictable splashes of liquid in his solid sculptures, drawing the attention of an audience with its fluid and off-balance appearance. In his Yuanyang and Splash of Wonder series, Tsang even adds the bonus image of a human face peeking through the pouring liquid.
